Charities are being offered the chance to receive a year’s support from a supermarket.

Sainsbury’s store in Northumberland Park is looking for local charities to support as part of the company’s Local Charity of the Year scheme.

Nominations are being sought, from which three charities will be chosen for customers to vote for between June 12 and 25, both in-store and online.

Forms are available from the store. Shortlisted charities will be announced in June.

“We’ve had a great year working in partnerships with Shiremoor and District Children’s Treat and we’re excited to be offering a new charity the chance to receive support from our customers and colleagues.”
