Today, Tuesday 9th June 2015, members of TAME CFR were presented with a cheque from Nicky Parkin, PR Ambassador and Will Carpenter, Store Manager of Sainsbury’s Tamworth. The cheque for a whopping £9,716.42 was raised over the past 12 months for the 2014-2015 period where TAME CFR were the stores nominated charity.
Over the 12 month period, Sainsbury’s colleagues and members of TAME CFR have held a variety of fundraising events including bucket collecting, bag packs, clothes shows and food sampling events.
Liam Marshall, First Responder and Fundraising Trustee said “This is an amazing amount of money raised and is a testament to the hard work and dedication put in by members of TAME and Sainsbury’s colleagues. However, none of this could be achieved if it was not for generous donations made by the people of Tamworth and Sainsbury’s Tamworth customers. A massive thank you has to go out to them.”
Will Carpenter stated “It was a pleasure working with such a valuable group of people who volunteer their spare time to help others. It is great to see how much has been achieved”
Through working with Sainsbury’s Tamworth, support for TAME has grown and our awareness has increased. We would like to say a big thank you again to Sainsbury’s Tamwworth, their customers and all those who have supported us.
