Costcutter raise over £1,000 to support families with sick children


Nationwide convenience store operator Costcutter Supermarkets Group has raised over £1,000 for The Sick Children’s Trust to keep families with seriously ill children together in free ‘Home from Home’ accommodation.

The Sick Children’s Trust runs ten ‘Homes from Home’ across the country, three of which are located at specialist paediatric hospitals in Yorkshire: Leeds Children’s Hospital and Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

This year The Sick Children’s Trust was voted as the ‘Charity Choice’ by Costcutter Head Office, based in York. The money raised through various fundraising activities will provide 36 nights of accommodation to families in need of a ‘Home from Home’ when their child is undergoing specialist treatment in hospital
