SAINSBURY’S in Swindon is taking part in an initiative to help young people.

It is lending its support to the STEP 10 to 18 project as a part its 150th birthday celebrations.

STEP is a Nythe charity that helps 300 young people between the ages of 10 and 18.

These youngsters struggle with social isolation, friendships, family problems or mental health issues.

The team at Sainsbury’s is going to help by teaching life skills, healthy eating and cooking, pot planting and more.

STEP project director Johanna Bryant said: “We are extremely grateful that Sainsbury’s has chosen our charity to support over the coming months.

“It’s amazing to know that we have staff and customers of Sainsbury’s committed to helping us to help some of the most vulnerable children across Swindon.

“Our children are so excited to learn about healthy food and how to look after themselves with the help of staff from Sainsbury’s.”

Store manager Craig Hussey added: “We’re excited to be helping a local cause so close to our hearts. It’s great way for our colleagues to come together and support the community.”
