SPAR Scotland, the leading convenience store group in Scotland, is launching its second Community Cashback campaign in March to giveaway a further £30,000 to community groups and charities who provide a variety of worthwhile services to communities around the country.
Twenty four charities benefitted 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 for 24 winning local groups and charities to have a chance to win 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 who 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 SPAR Community Cashback campaign is open to all Scottish community groups and charities. The campaign starts on 1 March 2021. Closing date for nominations is 28 March 2021. Voting for the shortlist runs from 12 April-9 May 2021 and prizes will be distributed at the end of May 2021. Twenty four winners will be chosen from around Scotland with the chance of winning one of the four different monetary prizes from £750, £1,000, £1,500 and £2,000.
