On March 24th the team at Sainsbury's Ings Local turned their fantastic fundraising skills to support Comic Relief 2017.
The staff at the Ings road store in Hull were dressed in Comic Relief jumpers and some were dressed head to toe in red clothing including a red painted face and of course they all wore a red nose!
What did they do?
They raised money by having a Red Nose Bear raffle and they also organised a book sale outside which reached the people passing by as well as the customers that came into the shop.
How much did they raise?
The team raised a fantastic £489.00!
How will the money be used?
