Sainsbury’s staff take the scenic route to their favourite pub!
Posted on 20 May 2013
A team of staff, and their partners, from Sainsbury’s New Romney, are taking a walk to their local pub, the Captain Howey – via Eastbourne.
Led by Kay Gray and Jodi Powell, the group will be striding out from Eastbourne back to their favourite watering hole, the Captain Howey pub in aid of Pilgrims Hospices on Saturday 25 May, finishing the following day.
Kay Gray, checkout supervisor explained: “We wanted to do something special for Pilgrims and what started as a small venture with just Jodi Powell, another member of staff, myself and our husbands walking, soon became a major staff event.
“The local MMA gym Madhatters and the Captain Howey all got behind the staff and have been raising money on our behalf.
Pam Meller, Pilgrims fundraising assistant, said: “Kay and the team at Sainsbury’s New Romney have been really enthusiastic in supporting us as its charity of the year. It has been great working with them and we hope they have a fabulous time and their feet don’t hurt too much afterwards.
“The money raised will enable Pilgrims to continue to offer care to all in need of our services in the east Kent.”
If you would like to donate or sponsor someone from Sainsbury’s there are still collecting tins in store. Or you can greet them at the Captain Howey on their return
