Sarah Harris won our Trolley Dash raffle, hosted by Sainsbury’s Heaton Park. She was given two minutes on Sunday (22 November) to sprint through the aisles and top her trolley up with goods worth £250. We are Sainsbury’s Local Charity of the Year, and after settling the bill we checked out with £1,500 from the sale of raffle tickets..
Sarah, the generous mum of four then donated all of her winnings to another local charity, GIFT, which collects donated food items and distributes these regularly to low-income families in the community.
A delighted Rochelle Broman, our Fundraising Manager, said,
“We’re very pleased with how much we made from the draw. I think it’s lovely that Sarah donated the items to GIFT and very fitting – The Fed and GIFT have a strong reciprocal relationship, often supporting the same families and referring them to the each other.”
