Spread the word and help Cheddar Youth Trust

 

Sainsbury’s have offered to sponsor a Cheddar charity for a whole year and Cheddar Youth Trust is in with a chance of being that charity. To help the trust, which raises funds and makes financial grants to help young Cheddar people, you just need to vote for it. From Monday 13 June 2016, for just two or three weeks, Sainsbury’s in Cheddar will be asking customers which of three local charities should receive sponsorship from them. You’ll be offered a token to put in a voting box.

 

So, whenever you visit Sainsbury’s, PLEASE vote for Cheddar Youth Trust. And could you also encourage everyone you can think of to do the same? If Cheddar Youth Trust is selected it means we’ll be able to help more people, so please vote early and vote often. With your votes we can help young Cheddar people who need funds to develop their talents, their education or to give service to others here or abroad.

 

Thank you for your support.
