SPAR Scotland is launching its second Community Cashback campaign to give away a further £30,000 to community groups and charities.
A total of 24 organisations benefited from the first Community Cashback campaign held last October, when shoppers and staff of SPAR stores placed nearly 7,000 votes for their most deserving local causes.
This spring, 108 SPAR stores will take nominations, and 24 winning groups and charities will be given one of the four monetary prizes ranging from £750 to £2,000. The £30,000 is being donated by SPAR Scotland.
Colin McLean, CEO of SPAR Scotland, said: “We received such a great response to our first ever Community Cashback campaign that we felt obliged to do it again to support small local groups that have been affected by the pandemic. It is very important that we continue to give back to the local communities and customers who support our stores.
“We set up the Community Cashback campaign to recognise the vital work many local community groups and charities do around Scotland. These small organisations have suffered financially due to the pandemic and we hope our donation will help the winners benefit in some small way.”
The campaign starts on 1 March, and the closing date for nominations is 28 March. Prizes will be distributed at the end of May.
