Staff at a supermarket in Park Royal are celebrating after raising more than £40,000 for good causes across the borough.

Workers at ASDA in Western Road have exceeded their own expectations for their annual fundraising efforts.

Among the beneficiaries of the £40,386.284 total include the Harlesden Sickle Society, Brent’s Fostering Team, The Hepatitis B Foundation and Brent Food Bank in Scrubs Lane, Harlesden.

The money was raised through collections and fundraising initiatives, schools including Capital City Academy in Doyle Gardens, Willesden, and John Keble Primary School in Crownhill Road, Harleden, also spend a day in store fundraising.

Mia’s Missouri Mission, a successful campaign to raise £50,000 to help fly severely disabled five-year-old Mia Ferreria from Kilburn to America to receive a potentially life changing operation and physiotherapy, also took to the store to raise money for their cause.
