Supermarket staff have raised an amazing £10,500 to help young carers in Rugby.

The team at Sainsbury’s in Dunchurch Road, Rugby, held a number of book sales, tombolas and sold handmade hearts to raise the cash.

Annette Collier, from Rugby Young Carers Project, said: “What an amazing amount to raise, thank you for all your hard work. We will now be able to take our older young carers on holiday to Devon. It will also go towards keeping our group in Rugby for the under 12s going. It’s just amazing, thank you so, so much.”

Rachel Fordham, from Sainsbury’s, said: “We are pleased to have raised so much money, especially as it will go to helping such a lovely bunch of children.”
