Christine Gillott, Senior Fundraiser for Care for Veterans, said: “We are so thankful to all the colleagues and customers at Sainsbury’s Littlehampton for supporting Care for Veterans during this most challenging time. Our regular fundraising activities during the pandemic had to be postponed and this had a huge impact on raising much needed funds. The fantastic amount raised would provide 80 physiotherapy sessions. Physiotherapy is an important part of rehabilitation, and just a couple of sessions a week can enable a disabled veteran in our care to achieve major goals for improved quality of life and independence.”
