TESCO Petersfield provided a £250 boost to harmony singers Petersfield Voices after the group helped celebrate the store’s re-launch.
The Causeway store was officially re-opened by Petersfield mayor James Deane and now has a range of new features, including a clothing section featuring children and baby ranges, a bakery, and a car wash.
Work has also begun to repair the footpath running down the side of the store to protect it from flooding.
Earlier this month the store held a customer event to celebrate the improvements to the store, with Petersfield Voices singing during the lunchtime period and complimentary Tesco Finest cake and prosecco for customers to enjoy throughout the day.
The singing group received a cheque for £250 to aid its fundraising for The Rosemary Foundation, which provides a hospice-at-home service in Petersfield and the surrounding towns and villages. It is intended to help patients in the later stage of life.
The event was co-ordinated by the store’s community champion, Sheila Barker-Wallis.
Tesco store manager Warren Partridge said: “The event was the store’s way of thanking customers for their patience during the disruption while the improvement work was undertaken.
“We were delighted that Petersfield Voices were able to attend and entertain everyone and that we were able to provide a donation toward their fundraising.”
Petersfield Voices perform for a variety of organisations and care homes, and have now raised more than £2,000 for the foundation.
