Staff at Nine Elms Temporary store walk to raise over £580
A sponsored walk from Sainsbury’s Nine Elms Temp Store to Trinity Hospice Branch and then back has been organized by Mohammed Abdul, the store’s PR Ambassador, to raise vital funds for the hospice.
On Thursday 13th November 2014, managers from the store Damien Brown (HR Manager), Waqas Butt (Manager) and store colleagues Naana Turkson, Michelle Bate, Janet Carroll, Dominica O Donoghue and Omar Wellington took part in a four mile walk from Sainsbury’s Nine Elms to Trinity Hospice Branch in Clapham and then back to the store and raised over £580.00.
At the Trinity hospice branch they where met by Ben Morrison Trinity Hospice Fundraiser, where he spoke to the Sainsbury’s staff and told them about how Trinity Hospice is providing care and the money raised during the sponsored walk will help the continued care for those in need.
All of the money raised is being used to help fund Trinity’s nurses to provide compassionate end of life care to over 2,000 patients each year. They care for people in Central and South West London communities with many different types of illness. Some will have cancer, others will have long term conditions such as heart failure, lung or neurological conditions.
Ben Morrison, Fundraiser at Trinity Hospice said: ‘Sainsbury’s Nine Elms Temporary Store has been a fantastic supporter of Trinity this year, and once again they have come up with an excellent fundraising initiative. From everyone at Trinity I would like to say a massive thank you for their continued support.’
Andy Robins, Store Manager, added: ‘Our store is at the heart of the local community and it is important that we can do as much as we can to support it. Trinity Hospice is our Local Charity partner and we are really pleased to be able to help out.’
