Yesterday I was at the checkout at Sainsbury’s and by the till was a collection box for Basingstoke Young Carers, Sainsbury’s Basingstoke Charity for the year, so although I wasn’t paying with cash I dug around in my purse and made a donation.
I’ve seen first-hand some of the work they do, but if you’d like to find out more please visit their website.
As an aside I’d like to publicly congratulate the woman who was at customer services at the same time as me: her child had ‘picked up’ an item in store and she only realised this after leaving the store. The poor woman looked mortified and had made her way back to return the £3 item. It was great to see someone going out of their way to do the right thing… and explaining to her child why it was wrong.
