On Monday 2nd December colleagues from 10 different Sainsbury's stores across the region took part in a volunteering day for Gateshead Carers. Colleagues from Team Valley, Alnwick, Bishop Auckland, Cramlington, Durham, Fulwell, Northallerton, Ponteland, Washington and Yarm joined Gateshead Carers staff on a day where they helped improve the carer's allotment.
Gateshead carers who provide great support to carers in the Gateshead area are Sainsbury's Team Valley's charioty of the year and have worked very closely in partnership over the recent months.
The volunteers took part in a range of activities which included: making a suitable walkway, digging and painting to make the allotment a suitable and enjoyable place for carers across the Gateshead area.
