Sainsbury’s to support Comic Relief fundraising appeal

Sainsbury’s is supporting a new Comic Relief and BBC Children in Need fundraising appeal that will raise money for people in need due to the coronavirus outbreak.

After already raising over £130 million during its partnership with Comic Relief, the supermarket will be matching donations given by customers and splitting them evenly between the two organisations.

Mike Coupe, chief executive of Sainsbury’s, said: “We’re proud to be working with Comic Relief in an effort to help those in need – it is more important than ever to be supporting charities and the crucial work that they do to help the most vulnerable in society.”

Customers will be able to make their donations at in-store tills by rounding up their bill to £1, £5, £10 or £15 at manned checkouts. Alternatively, they can add £1, £2, £5 or £10 donations to their basket at self-service checkouts.

Meanwhile, customers shopping with Sainsbury’s online or on the Habitat website can donate by adding a donation of £1, £2, £5 or £10 to their online delivery basket before checking out.

In addition, they can donate online via the Sainsbury’s or Argos websites by following the links to ‘The Big Night In’ or by giving their Nectar card points to the value of £2.50, £5 or £10.

Coupe added: “Over the years, Sainsbury’s and Comic Relief have helped fund projects that are saving and changing lives. We want to continue to give customers the chance to make a donation in this difficult time both online and in-store, and we’re proud to pledge to match their generosity pound for pound.”
