Journal 13 BRAMINGHAM PARK Customers and colleagues gathered instore to present Patrick Hoare with a cake and gifts to mark his 90th birthday and retirement after 25 years of service. Pat was also presented with his favourite tipple, Guinness, and vouchers to spend on his beloved garden. Store manager Glen Sharp said: “Pat’s an inspiration to us all. He’s always got a smile on his face, he’s great with customers and colleagues and is a real character. He’s going to be missed!” ELLESMERE PORT Congratulations to colleague Helen Jones who recently ran the Rock ’n’ Roll Liverpool half marathon for the Local Charity, the Babygrow Appeal. Helen finished in one hour, 54 minutes, raising more than £650 for the appeal, which will go towards a new neonatal unit at the Countess of Chester Hospital. BANK EDINBURGH Aberlour Child Care Trust will be delighted to cash in a cool £20,000, following the fantastic work of Sainsbury’s Bank colleagues in Edinburgh. They raised £15,000 from a charity ball and an extra £5,000 from their charity ‘KiltWalk’. Colleagues walked either 26, 13 or six miles (in kilts!) and they were even joined on the journey by some of their four-legged friends. Aberlour is a charity that helps more than 6,000 vulnerable children, young people and their families in Scotland each year. The money will, among other things, build a much-needed new kitchen at the Aberlour Options Lothian service. BANK ABERLOUR BANK £20,000 THROUGH FANTASTIC FUNDRAISING Sweet smell of success Bakery colleagues gave reigning Miss Personality Black Country Kyran Chopra some sweet support when she visited Wednesfield to collect goodies for a stall in aid of a children’s charity. The team donated tasty cupcakes and other bakery treats for her to sell and raise funds for her chosen charity, The Variety Club. “She was rushing off to an event and looking for cakes to sell, and when she told us what it was for we were only too happy to help,” said Lynn Ryan. A LIFE-SAVING MESSAGE WEST CANNOCK WEST WEDNESFIELD Cannock colleagues were shown how to recognise the signs of a heart attack and give emergency treatment by volunteers from the Burntwood and District Community First Responders. Eight colleagues attended the Heartstart session held instore, which aims to equip people to help while medical aid is being called. “It’s great that we now have several colleagues trained in case of an emergency,” said Heather Norman. 4ZONE
