We have some exciting news to share with you. The Brain Charity has been chosen by Sainsbury's customers in Liverpool to be their Sainsbury's Local Charity 2017.
Better still we topped the polls in, not one, but two of our local stores: the Elliot Street store and the Great Homer Street store; we look forward to working closely with them both over the next year.
As winners, The Brain Charity will benefit from a wide-range of support from our new partners at Sainsbury's. They will help by letting more people know about the charity in-store as well as with staff volunteer placements and sponsored events by Sainsbury's staff and customers. We will also be able to hold special in-store events on a number of days through the year, which will be a huge boost for us.
This is especially good news for The Brain Charity as we faced lots of really strong competition from some great Liverpool-based charities in the competition this year, so we feel very honoured to have been chosen by the Sainsbury's customers in our local community.
We would like to send a massive thank you to everyone who took the time to vote for The Brain Charity, it really means a lot to us and will make an enormous difference to the charity.
