HDSSG visited Sainsbury’s Market Street in Huddersfield today for the last time in our official capacity as their charity partners for a cheque presentation. We are thrilled to announce that after 12 months together we raised a whopping £6288.65 for our group.
The dedicated staff organised quiz afternoons, raffles, tombolas, fancy dress dates, they took on the 3 Yorkshire Peaks and cycled over 160 miles on their Big Bike Ride, they held Halloween and Christmas parties and a fantastic BBQ and fun day. We also joined them for a Christmas bag pack day.
Huge thanks to the staff, customers, our families and friends who made it such a success – enabling us to continue to offer a fantastic range of educational, sporting and social opportunities for our children and young people with Down Syndrome.
We have loved every minute with the store and look forward to working with their colleagues at Sainsbury’s Salendine Nook as part of our new partnership for 2015/16
Here’s a look at the wonderful ‘Thank You’ video we compiled for our Market Street mates:
