Members of the Batley branch of Mencap raised over £1,000 after packing shoppers’ bags at the town’s Tesco store. The funds collected will go towards buying new items for the charity’s Monday Club for service users. and kind-hearted customers donated a total of £1,237.
“A special thank you to Tesco Batley for allowing us to come to their store in order to raise these funds, and especially thank you to Tesco’s Community Chamption, Simone Rosly, who pulled out all the stops and helped us to organise this. She was amazing!” said Janet Gregory from Mencap Batley. Pictured are volunteer bag packers.
