On Saturday 18th November we were welcomed at Grantham Asda to fundraise as well as raise some awareness about who we are and what we do.
The response from Grantham shoppers was amazing and we managed to raise £736.32. But it wasn’t just the money, the warmth and welcome from every shopper who passed us blew us away. Many people stopped to chat with us, take our leaflets and engaged with us. We were supported by Karen, the Asda Community Champion, who sang for us throughout the day. She’s a fantastic singer and had shoppers (and us!) singing and dancing along with her.
We’d like to thank Asda, Karen and our volunteers who came and stood with us in the cold for six hours. To be so warmly welcomed and supported by the community is a feeling that will stay with us for a long time!
