Trustees from DSL met with Sainsbury’s Charity representative to discuss fund raising ideas for the term.
As well as The Frock For a Fiver event on 31st August, the East Prescot Road store is organising a sponsored walk on behalf of DSL for its staff, families and friends. This will take place at Otterspool Prom on Sunday 12th August. The day will incorporate a picnic (weather permitting), and DSL members have been invited to come along and be part of the day.
Sainsbury’s will be asking staff members to donate £10.00 per adult to take part in the walk – with all proceeds going to DSL. At the time of writing we don’t have any more specific details but we will email information nearer the time to our members about the day.
Furthermore, as part of the Sainsbury’s Charity Partnership we have been offered two dates to do bag packs at the East Prescot Road Store.
The first will take place on Saturday 13th October and the second just before Christmas on Saturday 22nd December.
This is a great opportunity for DSL to raise funds as the East Prescot Road store is one of the busiest superstores in Liverpool.
We will need support from our members to do the bag pack on both days between 11.00am and 4.00pm.
Whilst it is too early just now to ask members to sign up for these two bag packs, we will be putting out a request for volunteers after the summer holiday period, so keep a look out for this.
You don’t have to be there the whole time, if you or a friend or your family members can volunteer just an hour or two that would be most helpful.
