A SOUTH Elmsall supermarket has launched a full year of fundraising in support of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
Staff at the Sainsbury’s store, on Barnsley Road, kicked off the year by dressing as doctors, nurses and patients and selling wristbands and cakes and asking people to name the teddy bear on Friday.
They were joined by development officer Mark Perry and volunteer David Tonnend, from the charity, which provides an emergency, life-saving response to five million people across Yorkshire.
Staff are also planning to hold a number of other activities, including a race night and a sponsored fancy dress street walk, as well as collecting donations in store.
The air ambulance was chosen as the store’s charity of the year after it came top in a list of suggestions from customers and staff.
Sainsbury’s team leader Jane Adams said: “We will be having lots of activities going on to try and raise as much money as possible.”
To donate, drop into the shop or call 01977 608007.
