PROVING that every 2p makes a difference – your Evening Star has raised almost £1,000 for Comic Relief.

Teaming-up with Sainsbury's saw a massive amount of money raised for the red nose day charity last Friday.

From every copy of the Evening Star sold at Sainsbury's stores last week, 2p was contributed to the good cause. With 2p of every paper sold all over the county on Friday going into the pot as well.

Sainsbury's staff themselves managed to raise more than £1,000 at their Upper Brook Street store, in Ipswich, alone, including our contribution.
