A community store in Thornhill has donated £250 to its local playgroup. SPAR presented the cheque to Wilma Marchbank, playgroup manager, who was very grateful to receive the cash and said it would be used to fund days out and activities for the kids who attend.

The donation was a thank you to the community for the cooperation and support received during the 3 day filming of the SPAR TV advert at Thornhill, which was aired across the whole of the UK. The 40 second launch ad demonstrates how central SPAR retailers are to their local communities and brings the strapline “There for you” to the fore. The advert features charismatic characters including a caring SPAR retailer, identical twins baking at home and a couple creating a romantic meal for 2, all sourced from their local SPAR.
