Outwell supermarket Costcutter has given a boost to the village’s St Clements Church.

Thanks to money raised as part of the chain’s “Making a difference locally” initiative the store’s Sam Sandhu was able to hand over a cheque for £450.

The initiative raised money via customers buying certain items in the shop and the supplier then making a donation to the charity.

At the end of the year the store is able to choose which local charities it would like to support.

Sam and her husband George, who have owned the Costcutter shop for 16 years were delighted with the amount raised, and have already presented money Beaupre Under 5s group, and thanked staff and customers for their support.

The Friends of St Clements, is a registered charity and was set up last year to raise money to conserve and restore the medieval carvings in the church.

The programme is support by English Heritage and the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Kate Jackson, chairman of the Friends, said: “We have already raised £10,000 but need to raise £50,000 in total so we are very grateful for this generous donation.”
