Votes have now been counted!

Check below to find your store's new Local Charity of the Year partner for 2017. Since 2009 our stores have each selected a Local Charity of the Year to partner with and we've now raised over £13 million. This can make a really big difference to local charities at the heart of the communities where we live and work.


So why do we do it?

At Sainsbury's we want to make as big an impact as possible in our local communities. So every year we work together with our customers and colleagues to support a local cause at the heart of the local community. These are holistic partnerships that last for the whole year and include a range of support such as awareness-raising and fundraising in store, volunteering and donations.

How it works?

  1. Charity nominations

    Representatives from charities can pop in store, fill in a form and nominate their group to be the store's 2017 Local Charity of the Year partner.

  2. Store shortlisting

    Store colleagues will shortlist the applications and decide on a final three to take through to the voting.

  3. Public vote

    Each store will announce their three shortlisted charities for you to vote for, both in store and online through the site.

  4. The winning charity

    Once votes have been counted our stores will get in touch with the winning charity. The charity will be publicised in store and on this website. Check back on 10 July to see your store's new charity partner.
