BFF is Sainsbury’s Local Charity of the Year!

We had some great news over the summer! BFF has been voted as Sainsbury’s Local Charity of the Year.

The Sainsbury’s Local store on Burton Stone Lane in York will raise funds for BFF until May 2019. We’re over the moon and would like to thank everyone who shops at the store who voted for BFF! Trustees Claire Douglas and Jenni Williams visited the store this week to meet with Manager, Tonie Myers and her staff.

Claire said:
‘We had a fantastic welcome. It was wonderful to meet Tonie and see how supportive of BFF she and her staff are. Information about the work BFF does in York schools will be displayed in the store and Tonie and her team will be running events for us to help raise funds for our work particularly to pay for the amazing children and adult counsellors BFF funds in our schools. The benefit we’re having for the families we’re working with has been out of this world. Helping kids come to school with the skills and mindset ready to make the most of the learning available to them. All helping kids to build great lives and finish their education with the work ready qualification that suits their skills and interests. What more can we ask for?’

Here’s to a great year ahead! Thanks Tonie.
