Co-op donates cash thanks to mum
2:05pm Saturday 23rd February 2013 in News
A SUPERMARKET chain has donated £3,000 to a charity thanks to the hard work of a Hampshire mum.
Warsash Co-op gave the cash to JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) after store employee Rachel Deacon began a fundraising drive.
It was after her five-year-old son Charlie was diagnosed with type-one diabetes that Rachel decided to fight for the charity, which funds research to find the cure, treat and prevent the life-long condition.
JDRF was named Warsash Co-op’s charity of the year 2012 and the team pulled out all the stops to raise funds from collection boxes and book sales to taking part in the Great South Run.
