Spar Scotland has donated £1,000 between four foodbanks following a competition held on social media in January.
Followers of Spar Scotland on Facebook and Instagram were asked to nominate a local foodbank to receive £250 in Spar Scotland vouchers. Over 230 nominations were received, and four winners were picked at random to be given £250 each. The four winners from across Scotland are: Thornton Community Food Support, EBI Unites, Wee Mobile Foodbank Lanarkshire and Dalbeattie Foodbank.
Paula Middleton, Spar Scotland marketing manager, said: “We wanted to support those organisations who are looking out for others when times are tough and decided to give away £1,000 in Spar Scotland vouchers to local foodbanks. The four foodbanks chosen would receive £250 each to redeem in a Spar Scotland store.
“The campaign was aimed at communities and as we are always looking at ways to give back, we thought giving away a £1,000 in Spar Scotland vouchers to local foodbanks would help. We are delighted these four organisations will benefit from the vouchers.”
In 2022, Spar Scotland hit a milestone of over £1m donated to local and national community-based initiatives and charities since 2013. Applications are currently open for Spar’s £100k Community Cashback, where shoppers from all over the UK can apply for an organisation or charity to receive a share of the giant jackpot to support their activities. Entries can be made until 15 March 2023 at https://www.spar.co.uk/community-cashback-apply/
