Vote for Brighter Futures to be local Sainsbury's store's Charity of the Year

People can support Brighter Futures' radiotherapy appeal by voting for the charity to become Stratton Sainsbury's store's Charity of the Year.

Brighter Futures, Great Western Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust's charity, has been shortlisted by the Oxford Road supermarket to be their chosen charity.

Brighter Futures launched its £2.9m appeal last month to help bring radiotherapy treatment for local cancer patients to Swindon's Great Western Hospital.

Presently many who need radiotherapy have to travel on a daily basis for several weeks at a time to Oxford's Churchill Hospital for treatment.

How do I vote?

People can vote in-store or online until Sunday 28 June for Brighter Futures to be Stratton Sainsbury's store's chosen charity.

Online voters will be asked to enter their postcode: if they enter the Stratton Sainsbury's store's postcode - SN3 4EW - then it will take them to a link for that shop, as if they live some distance from the store and enter their home postcode the website may not list Stratton Sainsbury's as an option.

The charity with the most overall votes will win and would receive fundraising and awareness-raising support from the store.

"A great opportunity"

Jen Green, Brighter Futures' Head of Fundraising, said: "This is a great opportunity for locals to again show their support for our £2.9m radiotherapy appeal by voting for Brighter Futures to become Stratton Sainsbury's store's Charity of the Year.

"We have had a fantastic response to our appeal launch and there is a great buzz locally about bringing radiotherapy treatment to Great Western Hospital.

"I think being Charity of the Year would be a massive boost for our appeal. I know what we are raising money for will hugely benefit a significant number of local cancer patients and their loved ones."

The Sainsbury's Local Charity Scheme partners chosen charities with individual stores to make a positive difference in the community.
