CUSTOMERS at Sainsbury’s have been digging deep to help support youngsters with Down Syndrome who came into the store to do two days of fundraising.
Twenty families from the Chichester Down Syndrome Support Group helped man a stall over the two days and had a fantastic time meeting and greeting the very generous store visitors.
Early on Friday morning Natalie from the group arrived to set up camp at the entrance of the superstore and as the doors opened the donations started flooding in from customers young and old all day on both days.
Biscuits were decorated to give out and they were gratefully received by many a hungry shopper.
It was all part of being chosen by Sainsbury’s in Chichester as their charity of the year and saw them raise a brilliant £680.
The money will go towards speech therapy, Makaton groups, drama courses, equipment to help children communicate and improved their reading and writing skills.
