Sainsburys – Kidlington
Sainsbury’s Superstore in Kidlington, Oxfordshire, chose the Child Brain Injury Trust as their Charity of the Year partner for 2014 – 2015. The partnership was able to raise over £7,000 for the local family support project.
We launched the partnership with a day of fundraising at the store at the end of August 2014, and were pleased to welcome some of the families we support along on the day to help us promote the charity. The fundraising did not stop there. Throughout the year, the Charity held bag packs, collections and bake sales. We were so pleased by the generosity of the general public who showed their support and our great team of volunteers.
This was also a fantastic opportunity to raise further awareness of brain injury in the community. Sainsbury’s staff got behind this initiative and wore Charity t-shirts two days of the week. We would like to thank Sue Coyle and all at Sainsbury’s for helping make the partnership a huge success.
