A charity dedicated to helping children with brain tumours has become the nominated charity of a Romford supermarket for a year.

Clowns in the Sky, which has helped to donate sensory trolleys and other items for children battling brain tumours at Queen’s Hospital, Romford, has been named as Sainsbury’s, in The Brewery, charity of the year.

Staff from the store recently presented the charity with a cheque for £500, and have so far raised a grand total of £835.68 for charity.

Donna Byrne, fundraising manager for the charity, said: “The store will raise money in a variety of ways so keep an eye out for what they are doing.

“Our collecting buckets are already in place and look fabulous, and can be easily spotted as they are bright pink.

“As well as the monies raised it is really great for us to have awareness raised of who we are and what we do.

“Our partnership with Sainsbury’s should prove to be a great benefit. Thanks to everyone who voted for us and to all the Sainsbury’s staff particularly Lesley Donaldson, deputy manager and Jolene Deeble, HR clerk.”
