An Eastbourne supermarket has chosen their new Local Charity of the Year.
Sainsbury’s in the Arndale Centre will be raising money for East Sussex Foster Care Association and have planned their first fundraising events for later this week. On Friday (2 September) staff will be holding a second hand book sale and bric-a-brac stall out the front of the store. On Saturday (3 September) they will be running a tombola, with prizes from the likes of Middle Farm, Drusillas and David Lloyd. Olympic Gold Medallist Jayne Torvill, who’s patron of the charity, will be stopping by at 11am to show her support.
Children are encouraged to get involved with a colouring competition on Sunday (4 September), which has two categories, under 6 and 6-12-year-olds. Entry is £1 with the winners getting two cinema tickets.
