The store says customers and colleagues got behind the fundraising activities which kicked off with an auction of sport memorabilia and restaurant vouchers.
Colleagues also took part in a penalty shoot out, a bike ride and a footie tournament which took place over the Sport Relief weekend.
Former Everton striker Graeme Sharp pitched up for a couple of hours to help in the fundraising.
Sainsbury’s chief executive Justin King took part in his final Sport Relief Mile challenge before he leaves the company in July by running 17 regional miles across the UK, including a mile in Shrewsbury where he ran alongside Ellesmere Port store colleague Helen Jones.
Mr King, who smashed his own target by raising ï¿½104,000 with money still coming in, said: “ I have enjoyed every minute and mile of it and it was great to run with Helen Jones from Ellesmere Port at my Shrewsbury mile.”
Ellesmere Port store manager Nigel Fossick added: “I’d like to thank all our customers who made a donation to Sport Relief, whether through buying this year’s merchandise or making a donation to one of our Sport Relief fundraising events in-store.
“Our customers and colleagues certainly made a winning Sport Relief team and we’re delighted to have raised more than ï¿½5,000, which will help transform lives in the UK and across the world.”
