Superstore project picked for Tesco’s Bags of Help scheme

We’re excited that an improvements project to the St Catherine’s Superstore has been chosen to feature in Tesco’s Bags of Help charity scheme.

Throughout January and February shoppers at selected Tesco stores will be able to use their token to vote for one of three local charity projects.

St Catherine’s has applied to the scheme for funding to improve the storage bins used in the Superstore’s popular Buy a Bag for £10 offer, as well as for additional signage and other promotional materials. It all aims to boost the profile and profits of the Superstore, raising more funds to support the care we provide for local people.

Rachel Watkinson, Head of Trading at St Catherine’s, said: “We’re delighted with the response we’ve been getting from customers to our new look Superstore since we re-launched last summer, but we know there is still more we can be doing to maximise its potential to raise vital funds for the hospice.

“The new storage bins – which would be bigger and more attractive – will really enhance this unique element of our Superstore, enticing new customers in and encouraging existing supporters to return again, while the signage and promotional materials will really help to put us on the map.

“We’d like to say a big thank you to Tesco for choosing us and hope customers will be inspired to use their vote to support St Catherine’s, helping us to make a difference to the lives of local people affected by conditions like cancer, motor neurone disease and heart failure.”
