A Grantham supermarket has said thank you to volunteers in the town by putting on a Christmas dinner for them.

Two dinners were hosted by Sainsbury’s in its cafe last week for about 60 volunteers who work in the town’s charity shops.

This was the first time the store has held such an event for volunteers. It was the idea of store manager Debbie Wrightson who said: “We wanted to give something back and say thank you to the volunteers who help day in, day out. It has been absolutely fantastic. This is about people who give to the community.”

Two Mog cat cuddly toys were raffled with profits going to the store’s charity, Guide Dogs for the Blind.

The store, in London Road, has a gifting tree for customers to leave presents which will be distributed to patients in Grantham Hospital over Christmas. The gifts will be handed over on December 21.
