Morrisons will be holding events to raise money for Sue Ryder in August

The Houghton Regis supermarket is holding the first weekend of events on Friday, August 5, and Saturday, August 6.

Sandra Gibb, Community Champion for Morrisons, said: “Morrisons stores raise money throughout the year for Sue Ryder and also support as many local community groups as we can.

“August sees the Olympic games upon us and is a great theme on which to base our fundraising ideas on and to make it fun for both customers and colleagues throughout the store.

“We would like to engage customers to have fun and raise money for Sue Ryder.”

There will be a bric a brac stall, an arms of steel competition, a malteser challenge, a doughnut challenge and an Olympic sweep stake.

All money raised will be matched by the Morrisons Foundation.
