A SUPERMARKET has chosen a hospital as its charity of the year.
The Sainsbury’s store, in Commercial Road, Portsmouth, has joined up with Portsmouth Hospitals Charity.
The charity raises cash for Queen Alexandra Hospital to improve and enhance the wards and departments.
The store is specifically supporting the hospital’s Children’s Bubble Fund which will improve facilities in the children’s ward.
Portsmouth Hospitals Charity was chosen by Sainsbury’s customers through a public vote in store and online in June.
The charity will now receive a year’s worth of support through fundraising and awareness.
Tracey Thomas, assistant practice educator for the Children’s Department at QA Hospital, said: ‘Thank you to everyone who has voted for the Children’s Bubbles Fund.
‘We are over the moon that Sainsbury’s has chosen to support the children’s department and we look forward to working with the store over the next year.’
