Staff at the Morrisons store in Banbury held a successful fun day on Saturday as they began to raise funds for the Sue Ryder charity.
The supermarket, in Swan Close Road, recently announced the charity as its partner for the year and Saturday’s event was its first to raise funds.
On the day staff sold cakes and supporters did face painting for children and nail therapy sessions.
Emma Boisselle-Osborn, community champion for Morrisons, said: “The day went really well and we certainly want to try to do more events throughout the year.
“Each till had a bucket for customers to put in any change they wanted after shopping but I feel putting on some activities will hopefully get more of the community involved.
“As a supermarket we don’t normally do things like this so we would love to get more people involved.
“We have a week every month dedicated to raising funds for Sue Ryder so we hope to do events coinciding with Easter, for example.”
Sue Ryder provides free care to people with life-changing illnesses. Care is delivered through 14 care centres, homecare services and healthcare clinics.
