Tesco Ireland recently presenting a cheque to the value of over €12,000 to the Irish Red Cross.
The donation was made possible thanks to the Tesco Community Fund, which, including this cheque amount, has donated over €32,000 to the Irish Red Cross since 2014. As well as that, Tesco donated €500,000 to support the Irish Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal, earlier this year.
This year, Tesco increased the fund to make one million euro in funding available to local good causes up and down the country. To nominate a community group or good cause, applications can be submitted via the Tesco online application form online.
The Irish Red Cross delivers a wide range of services to some of the most vulnerable people in the community through a network of 79 branches nationwide. Its vision is to be a leading humanitarian organisation, providing impartial services and support to vulnerable people and communities both at home and abroad.
In response to the work the Irish Red Cross have been doing to support displaced Ukrainian refugees now living in Ireland, 24 stores across the country selected them to be one of the three causes to receive a donation from the Community Fund in their store, resulting in a total donation of €12,144.
