Dunstable's Asda store manager, David White, today presented a cheque for £200 to Houghton Regis Helpers.
The store run a grants scheme whereby they allocate funds every three months to three worthy charities within their catchment area. When shoppers are served at the check-outs they are given green tokens which can be placed in collecting boxes at the front of the store. The charity with the most tokens receives a grant of £500, and the other two receive £200 each.
For this month, through to the end of December, the tokens will be used to allocate funds that will be used locally for Multiple Sclerosis, British Red Cross, and Dunstable Street Pastors.
