Sainsbury’s Local Charity of the Year

You may or may not be aware that each year, Sainsbury’s selects a Local Charity of the Year to support through volunteering and fundraising activities.

If you’d like to vote from among the three shortlisted charities this year, you can either do it online or in the Penzance store. If you want to vote next time you’re in Sainsbury’s, the voting boxes are on a stand as you enter the store to the left of the community noticeboards. The online voting is very simple – just pop in your postcode and away you go!


This year’s shortlisted charities are Cornwall Hospice Care, Cornwall Air Ambulance and Penzance Food Bank, all excellent causes. CFWI Advisor Liz Anderson is Chair of Cornwall Hospice Care and has asked that we put in a plug for her! Cornwall Air Ambulance has been our guest at one of our monthly meetings and we have all heard about the wonderful work they do. And, of course, we all bring donated items to support the Penzance Food Bank at our January meeting each year.

Voting will close at the end of this month and the chosen charity will be announced in July.
