A Preston charity has received £1700 from a major supermarket.
Carers Central provides support to over 3200 carers across the city and the surrounding area.
Sainsbury’s appointed them as their charity of the year and deputy store manager Mike MacNeil.
Ben Blackman, Chief Executive of Carers Central said: “We are so thankful to everyone at Sainsbury’s Deepdale for everything they have done to help us.
“Been a small charity every penny really makes a difference and this money will help give unpaid carers a well paid break. Been a carer is a tough job, we want to relieve some of that pressure whether it be an evening meal, a cinema trip or even an opportunity to socialise with other carers.”
The Deepdale store is currently deciding on a new charity of the year which has drawn strong opinions from Blog Preston readers.
