Store’s boost for charities

Store’s boost for charities

FOUR charities received £300 each yesterday (Thursday) thanks to the generosity of Earlsheaton shoppers.

Dewsbury Sea Cadets and three groups in Earlsheaton benefited from a donation from Patbro Nisa Local supermarket on St Peter’s Parade.

Crafty Ladies, Earlsheaton Over-60s and craft group My Time were also supported.

Cash was collected by business partner of 20 years Mohmed Patel from sales of Nisa’s own-label Heritage range, plus some branded products.

It was part of store chain Nisa’s community fund called Making a Difference Locally.

To date the store has given £2,500 to local causes such as Earlsheaton Infant School and the Earlsheaton Over-50s group.

Mr Patel said: “We’re delighted to be able to give something back to the community.”

The latest cheques were presented to Coun Paul Kane (Lab, Dewsbury East) on behalf of the groups yesterday.

Coun Kane said: “It’s great for a local shop to be supporting local groups.

“I am really thankful for their generosity; it does help these clubs being sustained and kept in the village.”
