Following a customer vote, Sainsbury’s Pocklington has announced that OSCAR’s Paediatric Brain Tumour Charity will be the store’s new Local Charity of the Year.
OSCAR’s Paediatric Brain Tumour Charity was formed in 2014 by the parents and friends of Oscar Hughes, a 9-year-old boy who died of a Medulloblastoma in May 2014.
The charity aims to fund critical research into paediatric brain tumours with the hope to find a cure and less devastating treatments.
OSCAR’s Paediatric Brain Tumour Charity received the most votes and will receive a year’s worth of fundraising and awareness-raising from the store.
Marie Hughes, Chief Executive from OSCAR’s said: “We’d like to thank everyone who voted for us. Becoming Sainsbury’s Pocklington’s Local Charity of the Year will make a huge difference to our charity.
“We’re looking forward to the partnership and working closely with the colleagues at the Pocklington store.”
