Value thought for the month “My favourite item is basics chopped tomatoes, perfect for pasta sauces, casseroles and soups.” Gemma Sole, Sainsbury’s Bank TELL US YOUR NEWS! SEND YOUR STORIES TO THEJOURNAL@44COMMUNICATIONS.CO.UK Alan MacDonald capped off a remarkable year by being named the winner of the Prince’s Trust Young Achiever of the Year Award. After being out of work, Alan enrolled on the ‘Get into Logistics’ course at Sainsbury’s Langlands Park East Kilbride, where he learned essential skills to help him get back into employment. He was soon offered a full-time position and is now inspiring others by speaking at events as a Prince’s Trust Young Ambassador. Well done Alan! SSC COVENTRY Congratulations to the team at Coventry store support centre, who supported the national Movember Retailer Challenge. Seventy-one colleagues took part in the event, raising a fantastic £20,000 to help increase awareness of men’s health issues. Despite colleague cake sales and a 12-hour row across the Thames, the ‘Shave Less For More’ team fell just short of taking the top slot after all the figures nationally were totted up. “All of the ‘Mo bros’ would like to say a massive thank you to everyone for their support and very kind donations throughout the month,” added Matt Allman. DARTFORD DEPOT As part of the Prince’s Trust’s ‘Get Into’ programme, the depot offered work experience to 16 disadvantaged young people recently. The team was delighted to announce that 10 of them have now been offered employment off the back of this opportunity. BURTON ON TRENT It was a real family affair when Barbara Simpson celebrated her 80th birthday recently. Barbara was joined by her grandsons Daniel and Jonathan Tanser – who also work at the store – to mark the special occasion. Many happy returns Barbara! SSC Coventry’s fan-tash-tic total!
