SPAR DONATES £15,000 TO NINE ABERDEEN CHARITIES AND ORGANISATIONS

Date Published:

Nine local Aberdeen charities and organisations, shared a massive £15,000 on Friday 15th April, donated to them by SPAR stores in the Aberdeen area.

Cash for Kids, Millbank House, Aberlea House, Aberdeen PDSA AND Donview Nursery were just a few of those to benefit.

The money has been raised by SPAR’s Kincorth, Torry, and Victoria Road. Holburn Street, St Swithin, Ashgrove, George Street, Clifton Road, Northfield & Midstocket Stores, through the sale of carrier bags.

The initiative, which has seen a staggering £180,000 being raised for local charities since its launch in 2008, donates the 2p charge from every ‘single use’ carrier bag sold.

Every 2p is collected and donated to a locally nominated charity, benefitting not only the local area in which SPAR serves, but also positively impacting on the environment. Such is the case that SPAR has reduced its carrier bag usage by over 40% since the launch of the scheme.
