Sainsbury’s Brookwood has donated £500 from its Community Grants fund to Transform Housing & Support.
The grant will pay for improvements to the garden at our Pound House project in Woking, which provides a home for 10 homeless young people. The funding will let us create a quiet outside area where the young people can relax, as well as giving them a place to grow fruit, vegetables and flowers.
The Sainsbury’s Community Grant scheme helps charitable causes in the local community and is funded by sales of ‘Bags for Life’. Last year the Community Grants scheme provided £135,000 worth of donations nationwide.
Sainsbury’s Brookwood Store Manager, Mark Salmon said:
“Our store is at the heart of the local community and it is important that we can do as much as we can to support it. We are really pleased to be able to help out our Local Charity Partner Transform Housing & Support even more by helping towards the cost of garden materials.”
Transform is Sainsbury’s Brookwood’s Local Charity Partner for 2012/13. The store recently donated a range of household goods to our project at The Crescent in Woking and held a bag packing day that raised more than £250 for Transform.
