Willaston Jubilee and Rose Queen Fete - land train

Sainsbury’s Nantwich has helped a local village secure the future of its Rose Queen and summer fete.

Willaston Parish Council has been presented with a £100 community grant which will ensure the continuance of the annual event.

The donation came about after the annual summer fete was reinstated after 20 years.

Sainsbury’s Community Grant scheme, which helps charitable groups in the local area, is funded by sales of “Bags for Life”.

So customers at Sainsbury’s Nantwich who buy a “Bag for Life” are making a contribution to local causes.

Sainsbury’s Nantwich store manager Ian Sutton said: “Our store is at the heart of the local community and it is important we can do as much as we can to support it.

“When we heard about the Rose Queen and the summer fete, we were really pleased to be able to help out.”

Last year, the community grants scheme provided £135,000 of donations, nominated by store managers and colleagues from stores nationwide.
