Supporting local communities
Our stores are at the heart of the communities we serve and our customers expect us to play an active role in the local causes they care about.
There are a number of ways that Tesco supports local communities including:
Community Donation Cards
Each store has a community donation card with budget to donate raffle prizes and refreshments to local community groups.
Local Charity Collections
We allow local and national charities to hold collections in our larger format stores. From January to November, these are booked in by our agency Arc for Superstores and Extras. Metro stores manage their own charity calendar. Collections in December are arranged at store level.
Many of our stores have a dedicated Community Champion to coordinate community and charity activity on behalf of their store.
All guidelines for supporting local communities at your store are available in the Tesco Operating Manual. Find your nearest community champion.
