HSS were chosen by customers through in-store and online votes held in June and will now receive a year’s worth of support through fundraising and awareness from the store.

Jo Barker, trustee for HSS, said: “The Local Charity of the Year scheme has been successful for so many charities, we can’t wait to get started.

“We’re hoping the partnership will help raise more awareness of our cause to customers and will help us develop the important service we provide to the community.”

Paul Agate, Store Manager at Sainsbury’s Farnham Road Slough, added: “We’re really looking forward to our partnership with Home-Start Slough. We had a fantastic response from our customers this year during the voting period.”

The Local Charity scheme is now in its seventh year and has raised over £7 million to support local charities since 2009.

Last year, HSS was charity of the year for the Sainsbury’s store on Uxbridge Road.
