Store Manager Dee O’Brien said,“Our store is at the heart of the local community and it is important we can play our part to support it. This is part of our ongoing drive to make a positive difference in our local community.
Wakefield Wildcats Jo Kelly added,“The Wakefield Community Trust was established in 2013. The major objective of the Wakefield Wildcats Community Trust is to provide education, physical activity, and healthy lifestyle support for the children, young people and disadvantaged youth of Wakefield.
“The Wakefield Wildcats Community Trust has been Sainsbury’s “Local Charity Partner” for the past 2 years. The fantastic £300 donation’s to the Trust came about as a result of our partnership with Sainsbury’s. Buying the baseball caps and the woolly hats will greatly enhance the learning experience for those attending our programmes. It will give us the opportunity to be able to reward the children and young people for all their effort and hard work.
“On behalf of the Trust and the young people who will benefit from these donations, I would like to say a huge THANK YOU to Chairman, Michael Carter and Sainsbury’s.”
