Customers are voting in Sainsbury’s Grantham for the retailer’s Local Charity of the Year scheme.

Each Sainsbury’s supermarket and convenience store has shortlisted a maximum of three charities to put forward for the customer vote. Customers can vote through the in-store voting system or online at www.sainsburyslocalcharity.co.uk, until June 26.

The shortlisted charities in the running are Grantham Canal, the PDSA and Inspire+.

A spokesman for Grantham Canal said: “Grantham canal is a neglected waterway but has the potential to be one of Britain’s most beautiful canals. Volunteer activity has already resulted in several million pounds worth of work having been completed as they strive to restore it to the navigable, sustainable gem of the English countryside that it deserves to be.”

Grantham PDSA shop is located in the Isaac Newton Centre and raises vital funds to help local pets in need. Eligible pet owners in postcodes NG31, NG32 and NG33 can receive veterinary care through the PDSA’s pet practice. Since 2013, PDSA has funded over £50,000 of veterinary care in the local area.

Inspire+ is a totally unique charity with the aim of improving the lives of Young People through sport and healthy active lifestyles. They serve secondary schools by providing leadership traiing and opportunites for students who want to gain experience, skills and knowledge of sports coaching and also the organisation and running of sporting events. Their main service is to primary schools where they provide specialist sports coaching, teacher training, programmes for Gifted and Talented pupils and a mentoring programme to help those pupils who enjoy sport but suffer with low confidence.

The winning charity will receive a year’s worth of fund-raising and awareness raising. Sainsbury’s Local Charity of the Year is now in its eighth year and has raised over £11 million for local charities across the UK.
