A YEAR’S worth of support for the Sussex Multiple Sclerosis Treatment Centre in Southwick has been offered by Sainsbury’s.

The West Hove store has chosen the charity, based in Croft Avenue, as it’s local charity partner for the year.

Mick Inglesdew, store manager, said: “We are really looking forward to working with the Sussex Multiple Sclerosis Treatment Centre over the next year and the team have some great ideas for fundraising.

“We hope our support will make a real difference to the charity and customer enjoy the variety of activities we are planning.”

Representatives from the charity joined Sainsbury’s colleagues at the store earlier this month to kick start the fundraising.

Store colleague Ralph, aka Crazy Jain, entertained customers with his singing, while volunteers from the centre handed out balloons.

A total of £715.96 was raised on the day to start the fund.

The local charity scheme is now in its seventh year and has raised more than £7million to support good causes in stores’ local area since 2009.
