Penge supermarket's fancy dress raises money for hospice
A SUPERMARKET raised £327 for a hospice charity through a fancy dress tombola event.
Sainsbury’s in Penge High Street Road held the fundraiser on September 7 as part of a number of events to support St Christopher’s Hospice.
Fancy That 'n' Party, in Maple Road, Penge, donated costumes to help employees inspire customers to raise money.
The day marked the start of a year-long partnership with the charity which helps dying people and those close to them access care and support.
Sainsbury's Penge store manager Nick Barnes said: "St. Christopher’s Hospice is such a worthy local cause and we’re pleased and proud that the first event was a success."
St Christopher's Hospice community fundraiser Amy Hooper said: "I’d like to thank everyone at Sainsbury’s Penge who have done such a great job raising awareness and funds for St. Christopher’s.
"We continue to look forward to a successful year working with the store’s colleagues on this exciting initiative."
The Sainsbury's Local Charity partner scheme started in 2009 and last year supported over 1,000 organisations across the UK giving more than £1.5 million.
