Activities included a colleague bake off, book sale, raffle, foods of the world buffet along with a tombola, leg waxing and fancy dress. Customers were also able to join in the fun and one of the highlights was Mere Green Primary Schools performance of the Comic Relief song `Put a nose on it’ at the front of the store.

Adam Cadwallader, Store Manager at Sainsbury’s Mere Green, said:

“Our customers and colleagues are always keen to raise as much as possible for Red Nose Day and come up with lots of fun and creative ways to do it. I’m really proud that we’ve been able to contribute to the impressive figures donated from Sainsbury’s to Comic Relief. I would also like to thank two of our local schools, Mere Green Primary and Four Oaks Primary for their help with fundraising.”

On Red Nose Day, Sainsbury’s announced it had raised £11.6 million for the charity with more funds still to be collected.
