    SPAR launches its second UK wide £100,000 Community Cashback Scheme

    Following the enormous success of last year’s £100,000 Community Cashback Scheme,  SPAR is launching a second £100,000 Community Cashback Scheme this February, giving away grants to local voluntary or community organisations and charities.

    Starting on 1 February, shoppers from all over the UK can apply for a grant for an organisation or charity they feel deserves funding. All applicants need to do is share details of the exceptional contribution a local organisation has made to their community and what the grant would be put towards.

    Applications will run until 15 March 2023 via the community website and successful candidates will be contacted on 2 May 2023.

    There are grants available, covering all geographical regions across the UK. Amounts up to £10,000 are available, with a total pool of grants valued at £100,000. Successful applicants will be visited and awarded their grant from their local SPAR representative.

    The top 100 shortlisted charities will then have the chance to be showcased across SPAR social channels and website for a single month, giving the charities valuable exposure and amplifying the SPAR Community Cashback campaign.

    “Our 2023 Community Cashback programme gives our SPAR stores a chance to give back to their local community,” said Suzanne Dover, SPAR UK Brand and Marketing Director. “We believe in nurturing our neighbourhoods and supporting the communities we serve, and the Community Cashback scheme is another way we are helping to do this, especially now when deserving local organisations need some extra financial support.

    “The SPAR £100,000 Community Cashback Scheme will give shoppers across the UK the chance to make their communities better and we look forward to helping the winning causes in the coming months.”

    The 2023 campaign will be supported by SPAR UK and all five SPAR RDCs with extra PR, digital amplification opportunities, and more promotion in SPAR stores with POS and SPAR Radio.
