supermarket encourages customers to vote for their favourite groups
by dropping tokens into collecting boxes - and those that attract
the most receive a cash donation.
Coastguard Association received the most tokens in the latest
month and Dave Ilsley is pictured receiving a £100
donation from the store's Community Life

Runners were The National Animal Welfare Trust and Somewhere House,

for the donations.
