Sainsbury's Deepdale Preston store has run a series of events for charity

Sainsburys Deepdale show support for their store charity of the year, Space.

Colleagues from Deepdale donated 8 red bucket seat chairs for use in the centre, and the management team organised painting volunteers in the centre to help cut down their decorating costs

Sainsburys Deepdale will be supporting Space at the Goosnargh & Longridge agricultural show where they will be providing a stand and carrier bags

Store manager Howard Morton said: We try to do as much as we can to help our store charity Space, from inviting them in to big events like Valentines Day to donating our services as well as the initial fundraising events we do in store.

Space is a large soft-padded multi-sensory environment with specialist equipment to provide a place where those with physical, learning and/or emotional difficulties may more easily acquire skills and enjoy experiencesusually denied them.

Georgette Jones, aged 59 came into work at Sainsburys Deepdale on her day off to raise money for the Tsunami in Japan.

Customers gave generously as she raised over 80 for the disaster in the foyer of Sainsburys Deepdale store.

She said; After watching the disaster on television I am just happy to raise as much as I can, when I can to help.

If it gives someone help somewhere its worth it.

Howard Morton, store manager said; It is fantastic having Georgette working for Sainsburys Deepdale, she has a good heart and always gets stuck in when it comes to charity work.
