CJ Lang extends free fruit initiative to four more SPAR stores

CJ Lang & Son is continuing its support of Healthy Living Scotland (HLS) by giving out free fruit to children at a further four SPAR stores around the country.

During 4-10 October, SPAR Scotland distributed free fruit to primary school children from the stores in Abronhill, Garthamlock, Thornliebank and Erskine. The team from HLS were also on hand at each store to actively promote the initiative.

Stores in the East of Scotland will take part in the campaign at the beginning of 2022.

In addition to this campaign, SPAR Scotland will be running pumpkin-related activities in three SPAR stores with the team from HLS. The stores participating are Bo’ness, Sanquhar and Eastriggs on 27, 28 and 29 October.

Colin McLean (pictured), CEO of SPAR Scotland, said: “We enjoy supporting Healthy Living Scotland’s programme which connects local school children with healthy options available from SPAR convenience stores. It is important that we continue to encourage children to eat fresh fruit and vegetables.”

The Healthy Living Programme has been working with convenience retailers since 2004 and highlights the fresh fruit and vegetables and the healthier products available in convenience stores.

The programme is fully funded by the Scottish Government and aims to connect local schools with convenience retailers. So far they have engaged with over 13,000 school children across the country.
