With crime – especially violence towards shopworkers – a hot topic for retailers at the moment, Scotmid has got behind a new Crimestoppers Scotland initiative.
To celebrate its 30th anniversary and new brand, the charity has organised a series of ‘CommuniTea’ drop-ins, inviting people for a cuppa and a chat to find out about how they can speak up about crime, 100% anonymously.
With Scotmid’s support, Crimestoppers volunteers are equipping community groups all over Scotland with tea hampers, filled with free food and refreshments for the events, which will run until the autumn.
Jim McFedries, Head of Profit Protection & Security at Scotmid, said: “Scotmid is proud to support Crimestoppers Scotland and the brilliant ‘CommuniTea’ events. As a community convenience retailer, Scotmid stores are situated right at the heart of local areas across Scotland and our core purpose is to serve communities and to improve people’s everyday lives. So helping to ensure our stores and the surrounding areas are safe and welcoming is a key part of that, which fits perfectly with Crimestoppers Scotland’s ethos.”
