(L-R) Colleagues, Julie Bate, Emma-Louise Walker and Nikki Lee rise money for Sport Relief

Colleagues at Sainsbury’s Amblecote are celebrating after raising £1,700.44, to date for Sport Relief.

The team took part in a variety of fundraising events during the weeks leading up to Sport Relief’s big finale, which took place on Friday 23 March.

The store’s activities included cycling at the front of the store, which raised £500, a tombola which raised £170, a colleague trampolining and hula hoop challenge morning, which raised £50. Colleagues also held a Sport Relief bake-off competition, a regional quiz and a store raffle, which raised £30 for the charity.

In addition, the store offered a range of Sport Relief merchandise, giving customers the chance to purchase branded deeley boppers, wrist bands, pin badges and much more. Kevin Healy, Store Manager at Sainsbury’s Amblecote, said:

“Sport Relief is a fantastic opportunity for us to come together with the local community to raise as much money as possible for a great cause. We always enjoy coming up with lots of fun and creative activities to get everyone involved.

"I’m really proud that our store has been able to contribute to the impressive figure donated from Sainsbury’s to Comic Relief and we’d like to thank our colleagues and customers in Brierley Hill and Stourbridge for their support.”

This year Sport Relief challenged the nation to come together to walk one billion steps a day, every day from 17 to 23 March, counting their steps through the official Sport Relief App. Sainsbury’s led the charge with colleagues walking over 500 million steps as part of Team Sport Relief.    

During the Sport Relief finale evening of TV on Friday, Sainsbury’s announced it had raised more than £6.1 million for the charity with more funds still to be collected.
