Well done to the staff at Sainsbury's Dawlish, for raising £1700 for Richard's Wish since they opened last year. That's a superb achievement and is in fact a higher sum than that raised by their Alphington branch for their own nominated local charity. Dawlish customers can nominate their favourite local charity by filling in a form in the branch until May 23. A shortlist of 3 will then be made and the charities will be asked to make a presentation to staff, who will decide which one will be their partner for the year.

Once again Good old Sainsbury's anyone would think LOCAL businesses never did anything for charity. What bloody hero's they are. Another fine example of how they pull the wool over people like Nelsons eyes. Any thing they give to charity is tax deductable and they aren't stupid, just look at the profits they make

Moan about their prices one week and slap them on the back next. Make your mind up

Thought that was Sainsbury's staff that did the fundraising, i.e. local folks?

Since 1999 up until the sad passing of Brian Heath we as a business supported Dawlish Carnival via sponsorship, we make regular donations to Devon Air Ambulance. We also support the Scouts, all without any thanks from people like you, who shun local business in favor of profiteering multinationals.

Suppose you also support using productive farm land to build cheap and nasty little box houses on in order to support again non local people. Perhaps you and others like should move to Birmingham.

It's excellent that your business supports these causes, especially the Air Ambulance, so why don't you get some good free publicity by issuing a press release, including a photo with the obligatory large cheque (non-NatWest of course lol!)? That would be a far more productive use of your valuable time than slagging off potential customers on here.
