Nine charities to benefit from Tesco scheme

A new cycle of the Tesco Community Fund scheme has now begun and altogether, nine Wexford charities will be supported with the help of local shoppers.

With their blue tokens received at the check out of every shopping trip, customers are being encouraged to vote for their preferred project, enabling local charitable organisations to make a difference in their communities.

Tesco Gorey Extra will be supporting Gorey Men's Shed, Ar mBreacha House of Story Telling and Irish Red Cross Gorey Branch while Tesco New Ross will be supporting ASD Unit Catherine McCauley Junior School, Adamstown Ladies Gaelic Football Team and Alfies Tea Party for Feileacain.

In Wexford town, Tesco will be supporting Relay for Life Wexford, Meals on Wheels Wexford and Camross Drama Group.

'Each vote with a blue token does make a difference so we are urging our customers to continue to show their support by voting in store. There are some really great causes that we know mean a lot to people across Wexford, so we encourage everyone across the county to get involved with the Tesco Community Fund,' said a spokesperson for Tesco Ireland.

Since the scheme began in 2014, across Wexford alone, the Tesco Community Fund has donated over €105,000.

Tesco has helped over 14,500 local projects nationwide including schools, animal shelters, sports groups, elderly care centres, health organisations and many more.
