Barking drama group receive cash support from supermarket
A drama group has received a cash boost thanks to a supermarket chain.
Sainsbury’s Chadwell Heath donated Barking Music and Drama with £150 to help them with the costs of putting on musicals.
The money comes from the supermarket’s Community Budget Scheme, which in turn is funded by the sales of Bags for Life (reusable carrier bags) at the store in High Road.
Store manager Gareth Powell said: “Our store is at the heart of the local community and it is important that we can do as much as we can to support it.
“When we heard about Barking Music and Drama, we were pleased to be able to help out”
