Sainsbury’s Farlington raised nearly five thousand pounds for BASICS Hampshire after adopting it as their local charity for 2010/11.
They held bucket collections, dress down days and a Family Fun Day. Store manager Phil Bridgwater thanked staff and customers, saying their contributions helped support a local charity “that’s close to many peoples hearts in this area.”
Dr Dunbar, chairman of the charity, turned up to thank the staff and demonstrate some of the kit BASICS Hampshire doctors carry. “And we’ll be back this autumn,” she said, “to show you what we’ve bought with your immensely welcome donation. By then it could already have saved lives.”
