SPAR Scotland has donated a total of £1,000 to 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.
Paula Middleton, SPAR Scotland marketing manager, said: “We wanted to support those organisations who are looking out for others when times are tough.
“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.”
Over 230 nominations were received, and four winners were picked at random. The four winners are: Thornton Community Food Support, EBI Unites, Wee Mobile Foodbank Lanarkshire, and Dalbeattie Foodbank.
In 2022 SPAR Scotland hit a milestone of over £1 million donated to local and national community-based initiatives and charities since 2013.
