Over the past twelve months, Sainsbury’s store in Commercial Road, Portsmouth chose CFK as their local charity of the year. Through their social committee headed by Irene Hilliar and committee of Nancy Waller, Kasha Thurlow, Jeff Short, Peter Driscoll and Andrea Gilkerson Pooley, we enjoyed alot of varied activities.
The week before Christmas which was very warm, we went along to help out with the “The Patey Ensemble” who played some great Christmas Carols for the shoppers.
Jeff arranged most exciting quiz nights, with the canteen ladies making a great curry or two. Jeff was one of the most entertaining quiz masters going, making the quizzes fun but hard….
Pasha arranged a great Salsa night, although most of us had two left feet we worked hard to shake our booties, and wiggle our assets, to the point of falling over, mainly with laughter…
All the time in the background, the team at Sainsbury’s were baking cakes for staff to buy in their book sales, and packing shopping bags.
Then a year on, we took little Rosie White, to meet all the Sainsbury group, and “WOW” what an amazing surprise, when they come forward and gave us a whopping huge cheque……. balloons and all.
On behalf of all of us at CFK, we must thank all the staff and management at Sainsbury’s for all of their support and help over the last year, and for all the time and effort they put into this year with us. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
