SAINSBURY'S Penge, with the support of the Penge community, have raised £1,000 at the halfway stage of its year-long partnership with St Christopher's Hospice.

St Christopher's, Sydenham, was chosen as the local charity partner following votes from customers, with highlights from the first six months including a fun day and a midnight walk.

Sainsbury’s Penge store manager Nick Barnes said: "When our customers helped us to select St. Christopher’s Hospice as our new local charity partner, we knew this was a charity that would really capture the hearts and minds of our colleagues.

"We’ve now held several fundraising activities and we’re working to ensure the second half of our partnership will support the charity further."

St Christopher's provides skilled and compassionate palliative care of the highest quality to terminally ill patients and their families. 

The next fundraising activity will be a skydive in March.

Donations can be made on the event’s Just Giving page at justgiving.com/jsparachutejump.
