The supermarket, based on Fenland Way, will donate £250 to four causes through its Jack’s Supports scheme, where proceeds were donated from the sale of carrier bags.

Those that won in the latest round of funding include Active Fenland, Chatteris Midsummer Festival and St Wendreda’s Church Bellringers in March.

Active Fenland will use the donation to help set up walking and ‘back to netball’ sessions in Chatteris, the Chatteris Midsummer Festival will put the funds towards a ‘colour fun run’ while the money will also go towards a refurbishment project at St Wendreda’s Church.

Peter Lonsdale, manager of Jack’s Chatteris, said: “It’s wonderful to see how many local organisations and groups have benefitted from the donation.
