SPAR LADYBANK HELPS TO BRING FUN TO THE COMMUNTIY

Date Published:

CJ Lang Company owned stores Area Manager Jill McEwan helped Ladybank officially open and welcome the much needed Play Park to the community.

SPAR Ladybank contributed £459 to the play park fund last year, from monies collected through the SPAR Carrier bag initiative.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.
