Since 2009 Sainsbury’s stores have each selected a Local Charity of the Year to partner with and with the support of their customers they have now raised over £11 million. It makes a big difference to local charities at the heart of the communities.
The winning charity will receive a year of support from the store, which will include fundraising for and awareness of your charity. In return we ask that you would be able to come in store every so often to maintain a charity presence so that customers are able to see where their money is going.
Injured Parachute Regiment Veteran, Louis Smit, will be completing a static line parachute jump over Normandy on the 6 June from a WW2 Dakota to commemorate the Normandy Landings during the Second World War. This is a world first for an amputee.
Louis was injured and medically discharged in 2013 following a Taliban attack whilst on patrol in Helmand Province, Afghanistan which resulted in him losing his right leg below the knee.
Louis is raising money for Support Our Paras and says “Support Our Paras have supported me through some tough times during and post injury from adaptations for driving my car to educational courses so I could retrain as an electrician to enable me to gain meaningful employment. Your donations will go a long way in support of injured Paras”.
