Staff from a Potters Bar supermarket are encouraging customers to help them raise money for Sport Relief next month.

Colleagues and customers from Sainsbury’s Potters Bar are once again getting active and raising money for the charity.

This year Sport Relief is challenging the nation to come together to walk one billion steps a day, every day from March 17 to 23, counting their steps through the brand new Sport Relief App, available to download for free.

Sainsbury’s will be leading the charge with colleagues stepping up as part of Team Sport Relief.

Over the next few weeks, Sainsbury’s colleagues all over the UK will be working hard to raise money for Sport Relief, which will conclude with a week packed full of in store activity from March 17 to 23.

Fundraising activities at the Potters Bar store include colleague cake sales, dressing up days, a quiz night, a five aside football match, and selling Sport Relief Scratch Cards.

Karen Staples, store manager at Sainsbury’s Potters Bar, said: “Our colleagues love getting involved with Sport Relief fundraising and we’re all really proud to support such a great cause.

“There are some brilliant activities planned this year and we look forward to inviting customers to join in with the fun.”

Sainsbury’s shoppers can now pick up the official Sport Relief merchandise in store to support the charity.

This year, items include wristbands, pin badges, deeley boppers, water bottles and much more.

Customers can also win great prizes by buying a £1 scratchcard in store – with all proceeds going to Sport Relief.

Sainsbury’s has supported Comic Relief since 1999 and thanks to the support of customers and colleagues has raised more than £115 million for the charity to date.
