Staff members at Hornchurch’s Tesco were delighted to present the money they raised through their customers’ book donations to their community charities.
Mitchell’s Miracles, Avelon and Queen’s Hospital in Rom Valley Way received £1,500 from the Tesco in Airfield Way on Wednesday, January 30.
Brenda Orton, 55, front end manager at the store, told the Recorder: “It was a lovely day. We chose [the charities] because they’re local and the project is funded by our local customers.
“Customers bring in books they’ve used and we put them on the back of our check-outs.
“Then after they’ve done their shopping they can take the books they want to read and make a small donation to our charities.”
Mitchell’s Miracles in Western Road, Romford supports the families of children affected by the cancer neuroblastoma.
Corbets Tey at the Avelon, which provides college provision for people with special needs and complex difficulties received £500.
