Colleagues at Sainsbury’s Birkdale Liverpool Road have raised £796.67 to support their local charity, The Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation.

The store have supported the charity since the 1st July 2015 and previously raised funds through Fancy Dress Competitions, Pumpkin Carving Competitions, Colouring Competitions, Raffles and many more activities. The Presentation took place on the 5th of July.

The money raised will be put towards helping to fund four new patient support groups this year in areas across the UK as well as maintaining the existing 49 support groups already successfully established. Money raised through our amazing fundraisers will also help to fund a new nurse led helpline.

Amy Clarke from Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation said:

“We’re very touched by the generosity of Sainsbury’s Birkdale Liverpool Road colleagues. We are the only charity in the UK solely dedicated to lung cancer and the money the Sainsbury’s Birkdale team have raised will make a big difference in our mission to defeat this horrible disease. We look forward to future fundraising events.”

Store Manager, Paul Heyes added:

“It’s been fantastic to see the way everyone’s pulled together since we started working with Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation. We’ve enjoyed coming up with ways to support and volunteer for this very worthy cause and it’s great to think that we’re making a positive difference to so many people.”
