Customers at Sainsbury’s Nine Elms had a helping hand at the till by a local cause. Volunteers from Tooting & Balham Sea Cadets were providing a bag-packing service for customers on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd October 2016, to raise money for a new gallery that will allow the cadets to gain more catering qualification within the unit and for the juniors to gain modules.

The Tooting & Balham Sea Cadets , situated in Mellison Road have been supported by Sainsbury’s Nine Elms Point for years. The store have supported the Tooting & Balham Sea Cadets so far by allowing the charity to have awareness stands, collections days and bag packing in store.

Jessica Burton from Tooting & Balham Sea Cadets who was taking part in the bag-packing said: “We was really looking forward to helping pack checkout customer’s shopping and now we would like to take the opportunity to thank Sainsbury’s for their support and helping to raise awareness of our Tooting & Balham Sea Cadets.”


Customers were able to make donations to the Tooting & Balham Sea Cadets on the day’s, with collection buckets being situated on the back of every checkout and also Sea Cadets standing in the foyer area at the front of the store.

Store Manager Andy Robins added: “It’s always helpful to have support during the busy summer holidays, so we’re delighted to invite Tooting & Balham Sea Cadets to help us out and we hope the day helps to raise awareness of our partnership with them”.
