THE Sainsbury’s store in Haxby has chosen Hearing Dogs for Deaf People as its charity for the next year.
June Scatchard, from the charity, said: “We know the success that the Local Charity partnership has bought to many charities in Haxby, so when we received the recent phone call to tell us the news we were thrilled.
“We hope the partnership will help raise awareness of our cause to the store’s customers and will help us develop the important service we provide to the community”.
Store manager Nicola Oliver said: “We’re delighted to have chosen a charity which touched many of our colleagues’ hearts.”
The Sainsbury’s Local Charity project has raised £6 million since 2009.
