Store staff set to raise Sport Relief cash

STAFF at Sainsbury’s in Newton Stewart are set to raise funds for this year’s Sport Relief campaign by holding, amongst other things, dress-down days and bag-packing.

Alan Maclean, a team leader in the bakery at the Newton Stewart store, will literally be going the extra mile

by running with Sainsbury’s Chief Executive Justin King in Prestwick. Alan was nominated by colleagues to take part in Justin’s Sport Relief Mile Challenge, which will see the supermarket boss run 32 miles across the country from 14th to 17th March. One colleague from every Sainsbury’s store will get to run with Justin, meaning over 1,000 colleagues will have run with Justin by the end of the four-day challenge.

Colleagues from Sainsbury’s will also be running the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile in Newton Stewart. Customers and Newton Stewart residents taking part in the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile can choose to do either one, three or six miles by entering at www.sportrelief.com/mile, it is £6 for adults, £3 for children and £15 for a family of four.
