THE Salvation Army is enjoying a bread bonus – because of a refurbishment at a Doncaster supermarket.
The Armthorpe Salvation Army received dozens of loaves and pastries from the bakery at the new Morrisons store in Armthorpe, which is being converted from its previous identity as a Netto shop.
In preparation for the opening as a Morrisons on Monday, the store’s bakery ovens had to be fired up to ensure they were in full working order, with all the day’s baking being donated to the local charity.
Kevin Smith, store general manager, said: “I am delighted that our first bake is going to such a worthy cause.
“We always try to ensure that nothing is wasted and therefore donating the bread to where we know it is needed provides the perfect solution.”
The donated bread was given out at the new store at Church Street, Armthorpe.
The charity then dished out the bread and pastries to people in need in the local area.
The shop is one of a number of stores sold off by Asda under competition rules after it took over Netto.
