HospiceCare North Northumberland has been chosen again as Sainsbury's Alnwick's Charity of the Year.

Sainsburys Alnwick

The charity was previously selected in 2015, raising more than £10,000 from various in-store fund-raising activities.

Emma Arthur, from HospiceCare, said “This is a fantastic opportunity to do some fantastic local fund-raising for our clinical services.

“Being given a Charity of the Year status not only presents the hospice with an opportunity to raise much-needed funds, but also to raise the profile of our clinical services to a wider audience. We have met the Sainsbury’s Good Place to Work Team to discuss ideas for fund-raising over the coming months.”

As part of the fund-raising efforts, the shop is running a mega raffle. Tickets, £2 each, are available to buy in-store and the draw will take place on Saturday.
