A Potters Bar supermarket is celebrating after raising over £9,000 for Comic Relief this year.
Colleagues from Sainsbury’s in Potters Bar took part in a variety of fundraising events during the weeks leading up to Red Nose Day, which took place on Friday, March 24.
In total the store raised £9,100.
Activities included fancy dress days, challenges, a quiz night, colleague cake sales, tombolas and bag packing days.
Customers were also able to join in the fun and one of the highlights was a ‘ham and jam’ challenge at the front of the store.
Karen Staples, store manager at Sainsbury’s Potters Bar, said: “Our customers and colleagues are always keen to raise as much as possible for Red Nose Day and come up with lots of fun and creative ways to do it.
“I’m really proud that we’ve been able to contribute to the impressive figure donated from Sainsbury’s to Comic Relief.
“We also had the Potters Bar District Under 11 football team and the 2nd Potters Bar Guides bag packing on Red Nose Day helping us achieve our total.”
On Red Nose Day, Sainsbury’s announced it had raised £11.6 million across its stores for the charity with more funds still to be collected.
