CUSTOMERS shopping at Feltham ASDA have chosen to donate funds to a charity which supports people with long term neurological conditions.
Integrated Neurological Services (INS) were the winners of the Community Life Champion Initiative run by the supermarket chain, and received £200 towards delivering services they provide to people in Hounslow and Richmond suffering from Parkinson's Disease, Multiple Sclerosis or head injury.
Representatives from INS Fiona Marshall and Belinda Carosa collected the cheque.
They said: "We rely on support from our community to help us deliver our services and, as such, are deeply grateful to ASDA for electing to make donations to local charities through their token scheme. This is a wonderful way for their customers to learn about local charities and for ASDA to demonstrate their support for the many organisations which help the less fortunate in Hounslow."
The runners up were awarded £50 each. Deptford Reach which helps people damaged by homelessness, drug or alcohol abuse, and mental illness to rebuild their lives, and Southall Black Sisters, an Asian and African-Caribbean organisation which helps women and children escape violence and abuse.
Known as the green token scheme, every two months ASDA shortlists three charities. Shoppers are asked to nominate for one charity at the end of their shopping trip by placing a green token in their chosen charity ballet box.
The three new charities are the Mulberry Centre in Isleworth, Rivers Academy in Feltham and Upbeat Heart Prevention & Patient Support Group in Isleworth.
