A convenience store has chosen Alzheimer’s and Dementia Support Services (ADSS) as the latest cause to benefit from its unique way of fundraising.
Nisa Stores, in London Road, Northfleet, picks a different selection of its products every three weeks to be part of its Making a Difference Locally scheme.
Every time a customer buys one of the selected products the store donates either 1p or 2p to its chosen charity, and this time it was ADSS, the Gravesend and Dartford Messenger’s Charity of the Year.
Manager Jazz Goraya presented a cheque for £1,000 to day care manager Lynn Lidstone.
Mr Goraya said: “We wanted to raise awareness of dementia and the charity among the Asian community because a lot of people try to refrain from acknowledging dementia.
“The people at the charity do a lot of work good work, and we wanted to support them.”
