Following a successful year working with Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice, Sainsbury’s Brighouse has revealed its new charity partner for 2018.
Last month customers were given the chance to vote in store and online for the store’s new charity partner. After the votes were counted, Emma’s Mito Mission had received the most support from shoppers.

The Brighouse charity helps those who suffer with Mitochondrial Disease – “mito” for short - and their friends and family, to empower them in a situation which can often feel powerless.
Steve Brown, store manager at Sainsbury’s Brighouse, said: “We’re really excited to be working with Emma’s Mito Mission, supporting such a fantastic cause.
“Everyone Brighouse is looking forward to working together for a successful partnership.”

The charity was launched last year by former Rastrick Councillor Christine Beal in memory of her daughter Emma. She said: “We’re delighted to be named the new Local Charity partner for Sainsbury’s Brighouse.
"We’d like to thank everyone who voted for us, becoming the Local Charity partner will make a huge difference to us.”
