You probably won’t be aware but we were entered into the ‘You say, we pay’ Competition run by ASDA and Matrix Neurological were a chosen charity for the month of August along with two other well-known charities. During that month, customers and staff then vote for the charity they want to win.
Well you can imagine our surprise when Cath from Asda contacted us to say that we had gained the most votes and had won the competition!
On Friday 2 October we were presented with a cheque for £200 by the Store Manager to help support the work of the charity.
On behalf of everyone at Matrix Neurological – we have to say a massive THANK YOU to everyone who voted for us.
And a special Thank you to Cath from ASDA at Thornaby for all your hard work!
