News from: Reading Voluntary Action
Tesco Napier Road is supporting the community in a number of ways, in particular through the work of the store’s community champion, Dee. There are several ways in which Dee and the store can help local charities and community groups and they are always keen to hear from new local charities:
Practical support and one-off donations of food/raffle prizes
Dee can turn up to local one-off community events, muck in and lend a hand and bring along either a raffle prize or refreshments to help your event go with a bang.
Regular food offering
Tesco can give food to a different charity each night of the week. They currently have a regular charity they give to three nights of the week, which means they are looking for 4 more donation recipients. This food must not be for resale and only for use by the charity or community group.
Overstock goods such as toys
When toys and other goods are removed from the shelves to make way for new stock, the old stock can be donated to local charities or the hospital. Get in touch if you would be interested in your organisation being a recipient of these goods.
If you would like the support of Tesco in any of the above ways, or have another idea how they may be able to help your organisation, please get in touch with Dee directly by phone 07708 405078 or write to Dee Peta, Community Champion, Tesco Extra, Napier Road, Reading RG1 8DF.
