A MALVERN charity which runs play schemes for children with disabilities has received a £200 cash donation by generous customers at Worcester’s ASDA store.
The funds raised for Malvern Special Families came from the in-store community giving scheme which gave shoppers the chance to choose their preferred charity to donate to at check-out.
John Horsley, community champion at Worcester’s ASDA, said: “We like to help support local charities whenever we can through our green tokens scheme which gives customers the chance to support their favourite local charity.
“It’s been really lovely to meet with Malvern Special Families and hear about the good work they are doing providing brilliant clubs for children and young people with special needs.”
This year Malvern Special Families is celebrating its 30th year of supporting local families.
The charity was set up in the 1980s and has now grown to support over 175 families across Malvern and Worcester, providing clubs and play schemes for children and young people with disabilities aged between 5 and 19 in ‘out of school’ hours
Cassie Zoro, community fund-raiser at Malvern Special Families, added: “Thank you to the customers at ASDA in Worcester for choosing our charity at check out.
“It’s lovely to know that more people in Worcester are hearing about our charity.
“It’s great when supermarkets have community schemes like this which give customers the chance to get the extra feel good factor while they shop.
“A donation like this will make a positive difference in the local community and help support our families further.”
