Over €150,000 worth of product donated to families in need through our Christmas Appeal

Thursday 13th December, 2018

Last weekend our annual Christmas Appeal took place, receiving fantastic support from customers and colleagues. This year’s Christmas appeal saw us partner with 130 local community groups who collect surplus food from our stores each week to help bring Christmas to those who need it most in our communities.

The Christmas Appeal ran in 108 stores across 7th, 8th & 9th December, and shoppers were asked to donate a product in-store to their local charitable organisation. Food, toiletries, nappies, small clothing items and toys were donated as part of the three-day appeal.

Volunteers from the 130 good causes, were on-hand across the weekend to collect these goods for local distribution. With each group having the chance to talk to customers at the front of store about the wonderful work they do and inform them of what products would be most helpful to them should they wish to support.

Thank you to all of our colleagues who supported the Tesco Christmas Appeal!
