Tesco keen to help groups

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Staff re­porter

The Tesco store in Burn­side are ask­ing the com­mu­nity to come for­ward and sug­gest a pro­ject that would ben­e­fit from sup­port.

In the past five years Tesco Burn­side have sup­ported many lo­cal schools, clubs, nurs­eries and groups in the Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang area, pro­vid­ing both fi­nan­cial and hands- on sup­port at var­i­ous events.

Com­mu­nity Cham­pion Karen Jarvie said: “Tesco Burn­side are al­ready very ac­tive in the com­mu­nity. How­ever, we would like to of­fer our sup­port on a big­ger scale.

“This does not al­ways have to be fi­nan­cial as we are very aware some groups and or­gan­i­sa­tions just need ex­tra man­power. We would like the op­por­tu­nity to bridge that gap and en­sure a pro­ject is com­pleted as planned.

“That could be any­thing from clear­ing out a play­room, paint­ing a com­mu­nity room or help­ing to cre­ate a com­mu­nity gar­den.”

If you think Tesco Burn­side could help write to: Karen Jarvie, Tesco, 241 Stonelaw Road, Burn­side, Glas­gow, G73 3RU.
