A CLACKS supermarket has marked a year of successful fundraising at the end of 2022.

Morrisons Alloa community champion Jayne Lindfield was delighted with the amount of charitable work throughout December, rounding off a year of providing support to good causes in the area.

In December, the store raised more than £1,500 by selling small Christmas treats with Jayne sending a “great big thanks to everyone who bought or donated anything to help us raise this amount”.

The running total for the store's partnership with CHAS has also reached £15,000 with Jayne explaining Alloa is the first shop in Scotland to reach the milestone.

More than £30,000 has been raised via pick-up packs which help four foodbanks, two schools, a nursery and a toddler group and five trolley loads of toys were collected for Love in a Box.

The giving tree raised £281 for the Wasp Community Club and there was much more throughout Christmas, including Jayne's 12 acts of kindness.

This included making hampers for customers, donating selection boxes, hot dogs and rolls to a school, crackers for the Wasp Community Club so they can make hampers for the elderly as part of their Festive Friends initiative – as reported in the Advertiser recently.

A hundred oranges were also donated to St Mungo's Parish Church for their Christingle services while Christmas puddings also went out to the elderly.

Colleagues and a neighbouring business also received thoughtful gifts while donations went out to 16 families over the festive period.

Emergency services personnel also received presents while mince pies, selection boxes, shortbread and more were given to customers on Christmas Eve.

Schoolchildren have been in store to sing Christmas carols along with folks from Sauchie Community Choir.

Jayne said: “December was a busy wee month and I loved every hectic minute of it.”
