Here at SPAR, being there for you doesn’t just mean the little things - that’s why we partner up with charities supporting great causes, and why we let our customers get in on the action too! Marie Curie provides invaluable support and hands-on care to the terminally ill, which is a cause we’re proud to get behind here at SPAR. Find out all the different ways you can help support Marie Curie below, from simple in-store purchases to hands-on fundraising.
This March we’re donating up to 5p per product on selected SPAR products to Marie Curie, meaning you only have to go about your daily shop as normal to know you’re making a difference. See a range of our favourites below to see how you can help contribute.
The Staples - From baked beans to water, honey to tea bags, pick up some of your favourite pantry fillers to start making a difference.
The Sweets - What better way to buy your favourite confectionery guilt free than to know you’re helping a good cause. Cookies, digestives, popcorn and ice cream are all on the list!
The Snacks - Don’t worry, you can still play your part even if you don’t have a sweet tooth. Some of our favourite flavours of SPAR Hand Cooked Crisps are on the list, as well as our Salted Peanuts.
The Main Event - Never one to miss out, our ready meals are even getting in on the action too. From Chicken Tikka Masala to Spinach and Ricotta Tortellini, dinner is here to make a difference.

Everyone loves cake. Similar to Macmillan bake sales and other charitable coffee mornings, hosting a bake sale is a great way to get friends together, share a coffee and a cake, and raise money for charity.

Wear Yellow for Daffodil Day
Marie Curie’s Great Daffodil Appeal is an all-hands-on-deck approach to helping raise money and awareness for the charity. From contributing your efforts to a collection to fundraising on your own, or even just wearing yellow for the day to raise awareness, there are many ways to contribute. Find out more on the Great Daffodil Appeal today.
Marie Curie provides care and support services for terminally ill patients across the country, but it’s something that requires help, support and funding from the general public as well as contributing businesses. We’re proud to help Marie Curie by facilitating donations and helping those in need, and with the help of volunteers, donations and fundraisers, you can get involved too.
