Sainsbury’s marked its 150th birthday in May, with staff from across the business invited to volunteer for a cause in their local community to celebrate the milestone. In South Woodford, supermarket workers have pledged time to help improve, among other things, the Salvation Army centre on Daisy Road.

“Some of my colleagues will be weeding, painting and cleaning the carpets,” said store manager Mark Twell, who also donates food for the centre’s lunches for the elderly. “Others will be working to improve the alleyway that runs from our store up to M&S, planting hanging baskets and repainting the railings… We are also keen to brighten up the outside wall space with art, and I am open to suggestions from the community for any murals they would like to see painted.”
