Supermarket bag pack raises £1.8k
8:30am Friday 15th February 2013 in News
GENEROUS Merry Hill shoppers donated £1,810.18 towards a charity bag-pack in aid of homeless and vulnerable people.
Customers at Sainsbury’s were given the chance to help Betel of Britain by donating their spare change in exchange of a helping hand with packing their shopping.
The money was raised during the two-day event on December 22 and 23, 2012.
The funds will go towards helping the charity help homeless and people with broken lives have food, shelter and the opportunity to learn skills to get into employment.
Sainsbury’s store manager, Natalie Jacombs, said: “It’s always helpful to have support during the busy Christmas period, so we were delighted to invite Betel to help us out and we hope the day helped to raise awareness of our partnership with them”.
