Christ­mas ham­per project is given a £200 boost from Tesco

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

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.”
