We are not pulling your leg, employees at Sainsbury’s, Chase Lane, dressed up as turkeys, whoopee cushions and even Olaf the snowman from Frozen to generate funds for cancer charity Mitchell’s Miracles.

“The charity helps raise money for families with children who suffer from the childhood cancer known as neuroblastoma,” Sainsbury’s rep Careyanne Bendon told the Recorder.

“We have supported Mitchell’s Miracles for the past year and organised in-store fundraising, including tombolas, card making and body tattoos, as well as buckets and money shakers at every till point.”

The dedicated staff raised more than £3,000 and said they couldn’t have done it without the community’s help.

“In total we have raised £3,024.52 for the charity, and we would like to thank all of our customers and colleagues for their support,” added Careyanne.
