SPAR Scotland extends free fruit initiative to six more stores

SPAR Scotland is continuing its support of Healthy Living Scotland (HLS) by giving out free free fruit and water to school children at a further six stores around the country.

The promotion is running in Glamis, McAlpine, Ladybank, Stonehouse, Bathgate and Linlithgow on selected dates between 7 and 23 February. This is the third leg of the trial involving SPAR Scotland.

Colin McLean (pictured), CEO of SPAR Scotland, said: “We are carrying on with our support of the Healthy Living Programme which connects local school children with healthy options available from SPAR convenience stores.

“We continue to measure these trials with a view to extending them further throughout the year. It is important to encourage our youngest customers to embrace healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle.”

The Healthy Living Programme has been working with convenience retailers since 2004. 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.
