Sainsbury’s Local Charity of the Year scheme is back for the seventh year and the Newport, West Cowes, Ryde, Sandown and Freshwater stores are looking for new charities to support from the Isle of Wight area.

For the first time this year, customers will be given a choice of charities to vote for. The winning charity will then receive a year of support from the store, which includes fundraising and awareness.
