Tesco Parkhead Extra Community Update September 2019


Tesco Parkhead Community Update

Thanks to everyone who has supported our community book fundraiser! We donated £450 to our charity partners the British Heart Foundation, Diabetes UK and Cancer Research UK, and provided a £50 food shop to the Glasgow North-East foodbank. We received great feedback from the Les Hoey Dreammaker charity- our £1008.00 donation helped 250 wee Dreammakers and their families go on a trip. 


Community Champion Susan recently spent the afternoon with residents at the Golfhill Care Home, taking along some goodies for afternoon tea. Watch this space for details of an upcoming transformation at the home! On a side note, Susan was recently acknowledged in the Houses of Parliament by MP Paul Sweeney for her great work in the community. 


A signed Celtic treble treble ball was won by lucky Lucian Burlingham. This raised £746.42, bringing our total for the Tesco Dancebeats weekend fundraiser to £1203.49- thanks to all the dance groups who supported us!


This was our 4th year supporting the PEEK Project for National Play Day; we provided hundreds of bottles of water, juice, fruit and prizes for a free kid’s raffle. Over 800 people had a wonderful day with games, dance, song, food and a powder paint fight to finish!
