The Tesco store at Parkhead has a trolley in front of the checkouts collecting Christmas gifts for Glasgow Kinship Care Kids from age 0-16 years. A ‘Kinship Kid’ is a child who is not being looked after by their biological parents. This could be down to death, alcohol, drugs or mental health.
Tesco colleagues kick started the collection by filling the trolley. Why not do a Secret Santa in your place of work and donate a toy or new item of clothing?
The Parkhead store is also collecting boxes of biscuits and chocolates for the elderly in the local community who have no family.
The Centenary Tesco Bags of Help winners for the first part of the year were:
The Beatson Cancer Care - £25,000
Maggie’s Centres - £15,000
Diabetes UK - £10,000
Customers who support the good causes can continue to vote by using their blue tokens.
The Glasgow NE Foodbank in Parkhead rely so much on kind donations and it serves six other foodbanks in the local area. There is a permanent foodbank collection point at the store entrance.
Despite being a busy time of year, the store continues to support local schools and projects and request should be made by letter with plenty of notice to: Community, Tesco Parkhead Extra, 33 Beardmore Way, Glasgow. G31 4BG.
