OUR CENTRE CHOSEN FOR LOCAL TESCO COMMUNITY FUND.
We are delighted to hear that Tesco has chosen our service as one of the recipients of the Tesco Community Fund. From the 29th of October to the end of January 2019 (approx. 10 weeks), customers in Tesco Manor West in Tralee can take blue tokens after they pay for shopping which they can then insert into one of 3 slots for local charities on the Community Fund stand. Depending on the number of tokens received, Tesco will then divide €1,000 between the charities. We are delighted to be selected as one of the charities. Our sincere thanks to Tesco for selecting us.
