Spar UK is helping to raise funds for Marie Curie this Christmas, with the launch of limited edition festive sandwichs.

Spar’s Turkey Feast sandwich, filled with turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce, will return to shelves this year, alongside a new vegetarian festive sandwich, Wensleydale and Spiced Carrot Chutney.

The special sandwich packs will feature the Marie Curie logo and 10p from the sale of each product will go to the charity.

Olivia Basten, senior brand manager at Spar, said: “We are delighted to be supporting Marie Curie who, like Spar, are there for everyone in the community. Sales of our new festive sandwich range are a great way to raise funds at this time of year.

“We hope that in raising money for Marie Curie this Christmas, we can help make a difference to people affected by a terminal illness.”

Helen Stock, partnerships manager for Marie Curie added: ““Marie Curie is delighted that this year every sale of Spar’s excellent Christmas sandwiches will mean money raised to pay for the care that our nurses provide. That warm glow of having made a difference should make us feel all the more Christmassy!”

The limited edition festive sandwich range will be available in selected Spar stores from November 16 until January 1 2018, supported by social media, online activity and POS in stores.
