A local SPAR store held a fun-filled launch day last Thursday (29th August) to celebrate C J Lang & Son Ltd’s generous £1,000 charity giveaway!

SPAR Mastrick hosted a day of celebrations at its store from 10.30am-2pm, to mark the launch of the SPAR wholesaler for Scotland’s £1,000 Charity Giveaway campaign.

In a huge act of generosity to mark the 100th anniversary of the company, C J Lang is giving away £1,000 to charities in the vicinity of every single one of their 114 company-owned stores, including SPAR Mastrick.

The launch day at SPAR Mastrick featured a Spinning Wheel, where customers were able to spin and win a fantastic prize! A photographer came along and a balloon arch was set up at the door to add to the festive atmosphere.

There were products to sample, 200 goody bags and children’s goody bags for customers to take away, and more sampling from Healthy Living Scotland.

At 10.30am Brian Straiton, Operations Director of SPAR Scotland, presented a cheque to two local charities, CLAN Cancer Support and The Archie Foundation.

The C J Lang Charity Giveaway campaign kicked off on August 19th and will run until Monday 30th September 2019.

To be eligible for the £1,000 giveaway, charities must be a Registered Charity with a Registered Charity Number, and carry out activities in the SPAR store’s local area.

The lucky charity recipients will then be invited to a cheque presentation event at a central location.

Brian Straiton, Operations Director of SPAR Scotland said: “Our Charity Giveaway event at SPAR Mastrick was a great success for shoppers and store staff alike!

“By giving away £1,000 to charities close to all our stores, we are strengthening our position as Scotland’s favourite convenience retailer, by supporting charities in the communities we serve.”
