SPAR DONATES TO GEORGETOWN TODDLERS GROUP

Date Published:

SPAR Scotland donated £130.00 towards Georgetown Toddlers Group, allowing them to continue to function at the Georgetown Community Centre in Dumfries. The volunteer run group was forced to cancel recently due to lack of funds.

The group plan to use the donation to cover insurance.

The money was raised through the sale of single-use carrier bags, which costs customers 2p per bag, and was collected and donated to a local charity nominated by the relevant stores. The initiative has been in place since 2008 and has already raised over £250,000 which has been invested directly into the surrounding community.
