Our commitment to the communities we serve extends beyond providing a high-quality, value-for-money shopping experience. It also involves providing opportunities for employment, supporting those in need by volunteering time, generating funds for charities and bringing the local community together through SPAR sponsored events.
Through these activities, SPAR adds value to the communities in which we operate. Even though we have a growing global presence in more than 45 countries around the world, we are fundamentally driven by committed independent retailers who win the trust and loyalty of their local communities.
Our SPAR Partners around the world are involved in the support and sponsorship of numerous charities. Whether at a local, regional or national level, SPAR aims to make a positive contribution wherever possible. The numerous charities sponsored by SPAR impact a variety of causes, ranging from supporting children in need and those fighting an illness or disease to the provision of disaster relief.
These charitable causes lie close to the hearts of our SPAR Partners and retailers. We aim to keep playing a pivotal role in the lives of those in need and want to ensure we are truly at the heart of our communities.
The charitable events and activities that our SPAR Partners organise often bring SPAR employees and members of the local community together. It is this kind of personal involvement that makes a real difference, and that sets us apart from our competitors. Our community involvement initiatives are focused on creating awareness of social and environmental causes to ensure long-lasting, positive change.
