The Community Church in Southport has blessed the Saisnburys store in High park in Southport

A Southport supermarket which has seen staff suffer aggressive behaviour from some customers has been blessed by a local church. 

The Sainsbury’s store on Bispham Road in High Park was visited by The Community Church , based on Ash Street, in a bid to try and ensure some more pleasant days ahead for the unsung heroes working there. 

Staff have faced difficult times at a time when restrictions have been placed on some goods during the coronavirus pandemic. 

A Church spokesman said: “We heard how the staff have, on a number of occasions, encountered aggressive behaviour from customers frustrated at restrictions and there have been moments when the store has had to call the police.

“We decided to send a Blessing Basket, full of treats for the staff room, to express our appreciation to some of the many unsung heroes of this Covid-19 crisis who are working in our supermarket sector.”

The generous gesture was welcomed by members of the church. 

Speaking on their Facebook page James Hardiker said: “It was received by a very appreciated staff team who all sent their heartfelt thanks for such a kind gesture. Thank you.”

Debbie Caolan said: “That’s such a shame that customers have been aggressive. The staff deserve a Blessing!”
