SPAR UK £100k Community Cashback scheme returns

April 22, 2024 IN THE CATEGORY: Community, Responsible retailing

Due to the success of previous years, the SPAR UK £100k Community Cashback scheme returns for the third year running.

SPAR UK invests back into the local communities it serves, looking after shoppers and helping to build and strengthen local neighbourhoods. A core initiative related to SPAR UK’s commitment is the £100k Community Cashback campaign, which returns in 2024 and aims to help even more local communities. Last year’s campaign saw SPAR UK receiving more than 13,000 entries, with 20 different local organisations benefiting.

Easy application process

The campaign launched on 11 April and runs until 22 May. Shoppers can apply for a grant for an organisation or charity they feel deserves funding. All applicants need to do is share the exceptional contribution a local organisation has made to their community and what the grant would go towards. Grants cover all geographical locations across the UK. Amounts up to £10,000 are available and the total pool of grants is valued at £100,000.

Community spirit

A spokesperson for SPAR UK said: “Empowering local communities is about nurturing our neighbourhoods and promoting a brighter future. We had such a brilliant response to last year’s campaign that we are delighted to bring it back again this year.

“The SPAR £100k Community Cashback campaign demonstrates to our shoppers that we care about the charities and organisations in our local communities. Supporting local communities is part of our heritage, and we are happy to bring this to life for our consumers.”
