Well, the time has come to say goodbye as this will be our last Tesco Parkhead Community update as our store closes on 30th April.
We have had an amazing 10 years getting to know our customers and the community. Many friendships have been forged and we have worked with some fantastic community groups, schools and people in need.
We will miss our wonderful customers. You have been supportive of all our annual collections and your generosity has known no bounds.
You donated food and toiletries for Glasgow North East Foodbank in Parkhead which has helped feed thousands of local people.
You donated warm clothing and sleeping bags for those less fortunate and living on the streets.
In the five years of running our Community Bookcase, it has raised over £15,000 to help support so many local projects.
You supported our Christmas Gift Appeals. This meant we were able to help vulnerable families and care homes.
The pandemic showed the true meaning of community when so many of you stepped up to donate and help distribute food parcels and essentials to our elderly and vulnerable families in those first vital weeks of lockdown.
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support. Please say hello when you see us out and about. Best wishes from Store Manager, Scott Graham, Community Champion, Susan and all the Tesco Parkhead staff.
