Wine Cellars stores support Serendip Children’s Home

Two Wine Cellars stores in Croydon have collectively donated £450 to Serendip Children’s Home to support children with special needs in Croydon and Harrow.

The charity meets once a month to support children with mental and physical disabilities, providing speech therapy to local children as well as some training to parents.

The convenience stores, owned by Ben Selvaratnam, made the donations via Nisa’s Making a Difference Locally charity.

Trisha Selva of Serendip Children’s Home said: “In this instance the donation will be used to provide various activities for children with special needs in the Croydon area."

“Founded in May 2009, Serendip’s provides everything from urgent medical aid to classroom teachers for children in need. Over 12,000 children have been helped so far!”

Nisa’s Making a Difference Locally charity was established to support local communities, allowing Nisa-affiliated retailers to support local causes that matter to them with charitable donations. Every time a customer purchases an item from the Co-op or Heritage own brand ranges in-store, a percentage is added to the store’s charity fund, to be donated to a local good cause.

Ben Selvaratnam owner of the Wine Cellar stores, said: “We are happy to contribute to Serendip’s local projects, and we would like to thank our customers for their continued support through the purchases of own brand products in our stores, as without their support these community donations would not be possible.”

To support local causes in your community, look out for Co-op and Heritage own label products in your local Nisa store.
