School wins charity vote

CUSTOMERS at the Morecambe branch of Sainsbury’s have chosen a nearby special school as the store’s charity partner.

The announcement comes after the store invited them to vote for their favourite local charity in May.

The store plans to launch the partnership by holding a family fun day at Sainsbury’s Morecambe on Saturday, July 23.

Morecambe Road School is a day special school for students aged between 3 and 16 living in the district and surrounding areas.

It was chosen from many nominations from customers keen to support local good causes.

Over the next 12 months, the school will benefit from money donated through fundraising as well as volunteering.
