Sainsbury’s High Wycombe have revealed their new charity partner for 2018.
Over two weeks in June 2018 customers were given the chance to vote in store and online for the store’s new charity partner to succeed Carers Bucks who were the 2017/18 charity partner.
The charity receiving the most votes from customers to become the 2018/19 charity partner was RobsARTTT.
RobsARTTT arose as a result of the sad death of teenager Rob Holland. He lost his life to a rare and very aggressive cancer called Desmoplastic Small Round Cell Tumour (D.S.R.C.T.). The charity aim to raise awareness of this rare teenage cancer and fund research into the disease.
Jason Merrett, Store manager at Sainsbury’s High Wycombe said: ‘We’re really excited to be working with RobsARTTT, supporting such a fantastic cause. Everyone at Sainsbury’s High Wycombe is looking forward to working together for a successful partnership.‘
Amanda Dunkerton, Head Charity Co-ordinator, added: ‘We’re delighted to be named the new Local Charity partner for Sainsbury’s High Wycombe. We’d like to thank everyone who voted for us, becoming the Local Charity partner will make a huge difference to us.‘
The Sainsbury’s Local Charity scheme is now entering its tenth year, with the 2018 partnership launch weekend set to take place across Sainsbury’s stores from Friday 3rd to Sunday 5th August 2018.
