August 14, 2020 IN THE CATEGORY: Community, Responsible retailing

SPAR Scotland has launched its first Community Cashback campaign with over £30,000 to give away to community groups and charities around the country. Customers, store staff and CJ Lang employees can nominate a local charity or community group to win a cash sum of money.

The campaign will be taking place in all 109 CJ Lang company-owned SPAR stores with the winning groups being announced in November.

Colin McLean, CEO of SPAR Scotland, said: “We are pleased to announce our first Community Cashback campaign where we are giving away over £30,000 to local community groups and charities around Scotland.”

“During the pandemic, local community groups and charities have suffered as they rely so much on donations from the public. We hope a number of organisations will benefit from a share of the Community Cashback campaign”, Colin McLean added.

There are a total of twenty-one monetary prizes up for grabs ranging from £800 to £2,000.

The campaign will be supported with in-store POS, social media, online website content, and SPAR Live radio.

Various SPAR UK partners have organised Community Cashback campaigns over the past months. SPAR UK also recently announced its continued support for charities and those in need.
