Christain Aid Bucket Collection at Sainsbury’s Hazel Grove

Norbury Church would like to say a massive “thank you” to Sainsbury’s, Hazel Grove for their brilliant support with our work during Christian Aid Week. Our bucket collection at front of store raised £307. This represents a great addition to our funds, which were further enhanced by street collections, sponsored walk, cake sale and church donations.
Sainsbury’s staff were utterly supportive and helpful on the day, which, alongside all the Summer sunshine, made it a great, fun experience. Also: big thanks to Jan Smith, Publicity Rep, for all her help
