At Tesco Parkhead we’re always busy “oot ‘n’ aboot” in the community. We recently donated food as well as baby and maternity toiletries to Peek-a-Boo Play Cafe in Calton and Parkhead. We donated tins of biscuits, crisps, chocolate, and sweeties to our friends in Golfhill Care Home. Some of the residents are without family, so it’s nice for them to receive some treats now and again.
I was honoured to attend a lovely afternoon tea for Lesley Morrison’s retirement- legendary Headteacher at Westercraigs Nursery in Dennistoun. It’s been a pleasure to work with you and the children outdoors for the last three years. Haud the Bus and I look forward to seeing what retired life brings.
Until the 31st December the three projects you will be voting for in our Tesco Community Grants scheme will be Whitehill Parent Council- to create a quiet sensory garden area, Meal Makers- to cook meals for isolated older people, and Shelter Scotland who are working to prevent homelessness. Each project can win up to £1500, £1000, and £500.
