Sainsbury's Saves the Day
The ladies who organize Ashton Time Bank decided to hold a Christmas dinner for the elderly residents of our village. They sent out the invitations, booked the Community Centre, and bought the food.
Imagine how they felt on the day when their oven wouldn't work! It looked as though they would have to cancel the dinner and disappoint the pensioners but that was when Sainsbury's stepped in to save the day.
When a Tarvin resident who was shopping in the store happened to mention the disaster, Sainsbury's Trading Manager, Jan Howe, and the store Duty Manager, Mike Bolland, came to the rescue, donating over £20s worth of freshly cooked roast turkey from their deli
Jan Howe said, "It was a pleasure to help out. We always try to support the local community and we couldn't bear to think of the pensioners not having their Christmas lunch."
Well done, Sainsbury's! You really saved the day!
