Care centre residents can enjoy an extra special Christmas thanks to a kind donation from a local foodstore.

The Anglia Co-operative foodstore, Burghley Centre, Bourne, enjoyed a day of tombola fun at a local Victorian market, and raised a cool £150 for Butterfield Day Care Centre in the process.

Steve Diamond, the community champion for the Bourne store, said: “The Butterfield Centre offers a great service to the elderly people of Bourne and surrounding areas, and many of our shoppers have a connection with the centre.

“This year we have raised £3,000 and shall continue to support them.”

The centre works hard to enhance the lives of local elderly people, and donations play an important role in making this happen.

Debbie Hague, centre manager for Butterfields, said: “As a charity, we rely solely on donations and the Bourne foodstore has been fantastic throughout the year.

“We are going to put the money towards the residents’ Christmas dinner ensuring that, this year, everyone is thoroughly spoilt!”
