Last weekend saw the finale of the Sport Relief charity activities at Sainsbury’s, Milton Keynes.

One colleague, Des Smith who works on self scan on checkouts at MK, swam one mile and raised over £140.00. The city store had a bouncy castle all weekend and there were a couple of singers entertaining the customers. Across at the Bletchley store a Marshall Arts club carried out demonstrations, coaches from MK Dons were doing keep ups and theatre students came from college dressed up as clowns. The Store Manager at Shenley Church End, Joe Hunt, climbed Snowdon. From all stores many colleagues actually took part in the Sport Relief Mile held in the city.

Overall the Sainsbury’s in the Milton Keynes area raised an amazing £8098 and money is still pouring in. Readers must have really got behind the Sport Relief Mile held in the city as we were top of the leader board for the special Sport Relief merchandise sales, which would like to thank you all.

Mark Siggins, Store Manager at Bletchley, said “this is an amazing amount of money and I would like to thank both customers and colleagues for the support and helping us Rise to the Challenge. I would also like to thank the local community for coming into the store to help us raise this huge amount without them this would not have been possible.”
