Supermarket staff raise £1,257 to help people with mental health issues in Newquay
STAFF at Sainsbury’s in Newquay have raised more than £1,200 for a charity that will use the cash to help local people with mental health issues.
Supermarket workers presented a cheque for £1,257 to Simon Eastment, of West Cornwall Mind, yesterday.
They raised the money through a host of fund-raising activities over the past 12 months, after customers chose Mind as the store’s ‘local charity partner’ for the year.
The funding boost will be used to support and develop the charity’s work in the resort, which includes an open access centre, social support groups, counselling, allotment and creative days.
