FYI via FB

Can you spare five minutes to nominate Arthritis Care as your chosen charity for your local Sainsbury’s and perhaps ask your friends/family/neighbours too?
Charity name: Arthritis Care
Charity registration number: 206563 or SCO38693 (Scotland)
Charity contact information: lisam@arthritiscare.org.uk
For the reason why you have nominated us you could say ‘Arthritis affects around 10 million people in the UK. 70% are in constant pain and 65% even struggle to make a cup of tea. It doesn’t just affect old people but thousands of young people and children too. It is the largest national charity for people and families with any type of arthritis. Last year over 12,000 people were supported through the professional helpline alone. They have lots of help from volunteers but need Sainsbury’s help so they can reach out to even more people. Alternatively you can give your own reason/story, or share your local experience of Arthritis Care but there is a limit of 500 characters.

Thank you for you continued support

    Elna, could you give us more info, please.

    As I've raised money before for a local charity from supermarkets wanting to support a good cause in their area, this didn't sound to me to be what they wanted.

    So, I contacted Sainsburys and asked if it was OK to nominate a national charity. They replied 'you can nominate local branches of national charities as well as separate local charities in your area'. In other words, we can only nominate local branches of Arthritis Care not the national organisation.

    It seems that a vote for 'Arthritis Care' as opposed to 'Arthritis Care
    Branch' would be a wasted vote. And I can't find any email addresses for the branches in West Yorkshire. All contact details are for London.
    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.

    Hi Sticky

    I have no further information on this. It was from AC on my FB page so I passed the link on here.

    I too thought it should be a charity local to one's area.

    You could always contact AC if you wish to know more.

    Thanks, Elna, but I don't think there's any point. Sainsbury's seem quite clear on it and, in any case, my local branch of AC seems to have disappeared.
