SPAR ErskineErskine Parish Church recently benefited from a generous £2000 donation from the towns local SPAR store. Owned and operated by Dundee based CJ Lang and Son Limited, Erskine SPAR was able to donate funds raised through the sale of single use carrier bags.

Erskine Parish Church is delighted to have received the generous donation from CJ Lang and Son’s Erskine SPAR store which will be going towards Erskine Parish Church roof fund. Erskine Parish Church was told the total damage caused to the church roof would cost £200,000 to fix, before receiving our cheque Erskine had already raised £23,000.

Rev Johnathon Fleming was presented with the cheque by our SPAR Store Manager Ross Beck and SPAR Area Manager David Cunningham.

Rev Johnathon Fleming said: “Erskine Parish Church and SPAR share an appreciation for the community which they serve and we are truly thankful for this kind donation to allow us to remain a valued community resource to the people of Erskine.”

SPAR Erskine store manager Ross Beck, said: “SPAR has been charging for carrier bags for a number of years now and, in addition to reducing the number of bags going to landfill SPAR has also been able to raise funds to support good causes in the local communities. Erskine Parish Church roof fund was a great cause to support for our local community.”
