Potters Bar Sainsbury’s names Charity of the Year
A POTTERS Bar supermarket has announced its new charity of the year.
Over the next 12 months, Sainsbury’s in Darkes Lane will be raising money for the Herts Young Homeless Group (HYHG), which supports young people in the county who are at risk of homelessness.
The store hopes to raise �2,500 for the charity, based in Salisbury Square, Old Hatfield.
The fundraising kicked off at the recent Potters Bar Carnival, with all money raised from the Sainsbury’s stall going to HYHG.
Sainsbury’s store manager Suzanne Kara said: “Herts Young Homeless Group is such a worthy cause and we’re pleased and proud to be supporting it over the next 12 months.
