Jo Swinson, local MP for East Dunbartonshire, was at ASDA Bearsden on Friday to see the progress of their Community Life Initiative
As part of the scheme they’ve made meeting space available to local community groups and have created ‘Chosen by You, Given By Us’ which lets customers choose the local causes ASDA financially supports. Local charities are able to nominate themselves to receive a £200 donation from ASDA. Residents can then go in store and vote for their favourite charity with green tokens they receive at the checkout. The winner of the first draw will be announced at the end of the month.
Commenting Jo Swinson said:
“ASDA’s Community Life Initiative has opened up a great opportunity for local organisations.
“Over 20,000 green tokens have already been cast for local charities in Chosen By You, Given by Us. The winner of the £200 donation will be announced at the end of the month.
“Any interested charities should contact William Smith, Community Life Coordinator by email at Community_Bearsden@asda.co.uk or by calling 0141 931 7900 ext 2222″
