Disabled children and young people’s charity, Action For Kids, based in Hornsey, North London, is to receive a cheque for £3,700 from Sainsbury’s Muswell Hill following a busy year of fundraising for the charity.
Over the past year, employees at the Sainsbury’s store have undertaken a wide range of activities to support the charity. Employees have taken part in the Finsbury Park run, organised a Jubilee Party, and held in-store collections and raffles to raise vital funds for Action For Kids.
Some of the supermarket’s staff have volunteered with Action For Kids, giving the employees a wealth of useful experience and, in addition, the charity, which offers a work placement scheme, has seen a number of young people gain valuable work experience at the store.
Speaking about the donation from Sainsbury’s, Tracey Lloyd, director of fundraising at Action For Kids said: “We are so grateful to the staff and customers of Sainsbury’s for all their help. We rely on the generosity of local businesses and their customers to provide essential support to young disabled people and we cannot thank them enough.”
Action For Kids helps children and young people with physical and learning disabilities find greater levels of independence and opportunity through the provision of appropriate aid and support. The charity provides a supportive, accessible environment where students can not only gain valuable experience but also be of real help in the running of the charity.
