Christmas hamper project is given a £200 boost from Tesco
A Cambuslang group received a £200 boost from Tesco Burnside last month.
The store made a donation to the Lightburn Elderly Association Project (LEAP).
On hand to make the presentation in the Burnside store were Tesco managers, to Wendy Russell and Janet Low from LEAP.
The money will go towards LEAP’s Christmas hamper project.
Wendy said:“We are really delighted as it helps us with the LEAP Christmas hampers. We do 100 of them at Christmas and this year it’s to the most needy old people, and we’re working in conjunction with social work.
“It’s just fantastic to receive this, and we’re delighted, as Tesco Burnside do so much good community work and help on the ground. We have a good relationship with them and can’t thank them enough.”
Karen Jarvie, community champion at Tesco Burnside, added:“We are delighted to support LEAP with their Christmas hamper project. We hope the £200 gift card will help fund such a worthwhile cause.
“The hampers will be given to local residents in the Rutherglen and Cambuslang area and I am sure they will be greatly appreciated at this time of year, and, as the saying goes, every little helps.”
