East Kilbride MSP Linda Fabiani recently paid another visit to Sainsbury’s Olympia store to meet staff and local customers. She was welcomed by store manager, Nick Wood and taken on a tour of the store in East Kilbride’s town centre.
Linda learned about the store’s new Local Charity Partner – Hearing Dogs for Deaf People, the history of the store, the store’s food donations to their partners, Loaves and Fishes, and just how much work Sainsbury’s and their staff team do in the community.
Linda Fabiani MSP said:
“It was great to visit the Olympia store again and discuss the charitable work – the management and staff do so much in our community. The Olympia store with its town centre location is so much appreciated by its regular customers.
“It is great that this coming year’s efforts will go towards raising money and awareness for Hearing Dogs for Deaf People. Last year’s fundraising for Lifesavers was a real success, and I am sure the store will continue to impress going forward.
Nick Wood, Store Manager at Sainsbury’s Olympia added:
“It has been great having Linda in to our store to introduce her to our customers and colleagues. She was very interested in discussing our work within the community and hearing about the money we raised for last year’s Local Charity partner. She couldn’t believe the figure! It was a pleasure to meet Linda and to host the visit.”
