Sainsbury's (Wade Street Halifax), Charity of the Year
It is with great pleasure that we can now announce that the grand total raised from the team being chosen as the Sainsbury's (Wade Street Halifax), Charity of the Year is…£10,678.04.
CVSRT would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to all the Sainsbury’s colleagues at the Halifax store for their continued support and enthusiasm, and most importantly, a massive thank you to all the generous shoppers who have donated throughout the year.
This incredible amount is the culmination of: collection buckets on every check-out till, three fundraising days at the store, proceeds from a Quiz night and the sponsorship raised during the stores ‘Big Bike Ride’ last September plus a donation from the Sainsbury’s Community Grant scheme.
The money is very welcomed and gratefully received, and will go towards purchasing a new emergency response vehicle, which will replace one of our ageing Land Rover Defender 110’s. The new vehicle will cost in the region of £40,000 and will hopefully be in service in time for the teams 50th Anniversary celebrations in 2016.
