  • Other recipients included Fresh Start Borders in Selkirk, Kids Come First, Lochore, Fife Gingerbread, Culduthel Woods Group in Inverness, and Team Jak. 

Colin McLean, Chief Executive at Spar Scotland, said: “Being at the heart of local communities is hugely important to us and as a genuinely Scottish business, it’s even more important that we support good causes around the country.”

Spar’s national Community Cashback scheme returns in 2024. Applications open on 25 April until 5 June and all local groups, organisations and charities are encouraged to apply. Spar Scotland will be giving away £20,000 to local groups through this scheme.
