EVERY LITTLE HELPS TWO LOCAL WINTERTON CHARITIES
A new convenience store opening in Winterton next month will celebrate its launch with two £250 donations to local charities.
Representatives from the Winterton Lions and Winterton and District Branch for Leukaemia and Lymphoma, will be the guests of honour when the new Tesco Express store opens, Tuesday 4th February, on King Street, Winterton, they will be invited to cut a ribbon to declare the new store officially open.
Store manager, Matthew Barlow and his team will present Don Johnson - Vice President of the Winterton Lions club and Daniel Redhead from the Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research each with a two cheque for £250 as part of its commitment to supporting the local community.
The Winterton Lions work alongside the council to support local charities and deserving causes in Winterton and the surrounding districts.
The Winterton and District Branch for Leukaemia and Lymphoma research aims to raise funds to support Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research in its area. The organisation runs events and fundraisers to add to the constantly growing branch total. This happens through the commitment and dedication of a fundraising team primarily made up of a group of young people who are inspired to beat blood cancers by enthusiastically helping with the running and manning of events in order to make them as successful as possible raising vital funds for vital research.
Matthew said: “My team and I appreciate that the Winterton Lions and the Winterton and District for Leukaemia and Lymphoma do such wonderful work in the local area, and are delighted to be able to invite the representatives to launch our store and receive a donation. We look forward to building a strong working relationship within the local community and supporting local projects which directly benefit the Winterton community.
My team and I are looking forward to opening the doors on Tuesday. I am proud to be playing a part, along with my team, in breathing new life into the heart of the local community” Added Matthew.
