In a huge act of generosity to mark the 100th anniversary of the company, CJ Lang, the SPAR wholesaler for Scotland, is giving away £1,000 to charities in the vicinity of every single one of their company-owned stores – all 114 of them.

The campaign will run from 00.01 on August 19th to 23.59 on Monday 30th September 2019.

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

SPAR Scotland will then contact successful charities by email or phone within three months of the closing date. The lucky recipients will then be invited to a cheque presentation event at a central location.

Colin McLean, CEO of SPAR Scotland said: “This charity campaign running right across our company-owned stores is a huge part of our exciting centenary celebrations.

“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.”

SPAR Scotland has a long history of supporting both national and local charities, community groups and organisations.  They’ve donated £700,000 over the last decade.
