Supermarket staff will raise money for the North London Hospice, after the charity was nominated as its charity of the year.   Workers at Sainsbury’s Highlands Village will give up their own time to raise money for the hospice.   The North London Hospice, which will open its new day centre in Winchmore Hill later this summer, was chosen as the store’s charity after nominations poured in from customers keen to support the organisation.   PR ambassador for the store, Loretta Sidoli, said: “The reason we chose to support the North London Hospice day centre is because it’s a worthwhile cause.   “The opening of the new facility in Winchmore Hill will help the local community and provide some essential care and services. We look forward to working together in this partnership and we hope to raise lots of money for the new centre.”   It costs the hospice £6million a year to deliver specialist care and end of life services to patients living with life-limiting illnesses and their families.   Natalie Gordon, community fundraiser for the hospice, was delighted with the news.   She said: “It is fantastic to be able to count on the support of one of the country’s largest supermarket chains.   “I know the staff are keen to do what they can to help the North London Hospice. They know just how important fundraising is for us, particularly, so we can continue to provide essential support to our patients and their families.   “We want to thank them all for everything they are going to do.”
