STAFF of a supermarket in Helston will be fundraising today in memory of one of their colleagues who passed away in August this year.  

Sainsbury’s is hosting a ‘Pink Day’ fundraiser throughout the day (Friday, October 20) in memory of Sarah Trubshaw who sadly passed away from cancer on Monday, August 28 aged 51.

The team will be holding a raffle and a tombola, as well as one of the managers of the store having his head shaved at 2pm.

The money raised from Sainsbury’s Pink Day will go towards Breast Cancer Now and so far, £100 has been raised.
