CJ Lang and Son Limited, owners and operators of SPAR Scotland donated a generous cheque for £1000 to EDEN East Dundee Environment Network-Dighty Connect Project based in Dundee. The money was raised through the sale of single use carrier bags, which since October 2014 cost customers 5p per bag.

Ann Lolley, EDEN project coordinator said “this surprise donation is immensely helpful in working with volunteers on exploring ways to enhance the green spaces along the Dighty Burn in Dundee through a mixture of environmental and cultural projects and is gratefully received”

EDEN-Dighty Connect is just one of many chosen charities across the country to benefit from the funds raised through SPAR carrier bag funds. Cheques will be donated to various campaigns from youth clubs, sports clubs, elderly care and specialist medical treatment throughout the year.
