Over the last few weeks Sainsbury’s customers across the UK have been voting for their local Charity of The Year. We were chosen by over 60 stores to be amongst their three choices for the year-long scheme, customers then voted in store and online for their preferred charity and, after all the votes were counted, we came out on top at an incredible 46 stores.

Natasha Mason, Regional Fundraising Manager, said following the announcement by Sainsbury’s: “We’re absolutely delighted to have won this many stores across the UK, it just shows how much the public value the fire and rescue service in their local communities. The money raised throughout the coming year from all these stores will help us to fund our services, helping fire and rescue service personnel to overcome injury, illness and psychological trauma. So, on behalf of everyone at the Charity, thank you for voting for us.”
