The Block Fen branch of the RSPCA has benefitted by hundreds of pounds thanks to being charity of the year for the March branch of Sainsbury’s.

The latest in a line of donations was presented to the animal rescue charity when a cheque for £671.06 was given recently.

Money was raised through collection boxes at the tills although other fund raisers have included staff dressing up as animal characters to collect donations from customers.

Every year the store chooses a local charity as suggested by customers and then voted on by store staff.

The RSPCA year ended in May and the charity for 2014/5 is yet to be announced.
