The charity came out on top of the store’s Green Token Scheme.

Customers are given tokens at the till that they can put in a box of their choice at the front of the store, and Wadars was one of three charities that customers could choose from between June and August. The animal charity received hundreds more tokens than the second placed organisation.

Tracy Cadman, Wadars Operations Manager, said: “We are delighted to receive £500 from ASDA as a result of their token scheme, and of course extremely grateful to local people for voting us the winners. We don’t receive any government funding and rely heavily on the support of the public, and this money will help us to feed and looked after the animals in our care.”

A cheque for £500 was presented to the charity. Mayor Cllr Sean McDonald and Cllr Bob Smytherman attended the presentation.
