A Preston supermarket is offering the chance for a local charity to receive thousands in funding.


Sainsbury’s at Deepdale is opening up the voting to customers for who should be their local charity partner.

Since 2009 the Deepdale store and its customers have raised over £10,000 for local charities.

Sainsburys Preston Store Manager Mark Fitzgerald added: “Our work with previous local charity partners over the years has been really successful in letting our customers have their say.

“We hope our customers can take the time to vote in the coming weeks and give a local charity that’s close to their hearts the chance for us to support them.”
