Shoppers at the Sainsbury’s store, in Mildenhall, have raised a whopping £8,365.91p for the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal.
The money was collected by donations in store throughout last October and November making the total raised by Sainsbury’s customers across the UK to over £3 million in 2017.
Customers were also able to donate their old £1 coins which went out of circulation earlier in the year.
Jo Richardson, the store manager, said: “Our local community always get behind the Poppy Appeal and each year our customers and colleagues continue to dig deep to support the charity. We’re thrilled to have raised such a huge amount for the Royal British Legion and look forward to seeing what the future holds for the 23-year partnership.”
Ben France, head of corporate partnerships at the Royal British Legion, added: “We’d like to thank the Sainsbury’s customers and colleagues in the Mildenhall community for their ongoing support. Money raised through the partnership continues to help the Legion provide care and assistance to our Armed Forces community which includes serving personnel, veterans and their families.”
