Aoife Donohoe, Head of Corporate Affairs Tesco Ireland said: “At Tesco we are delighted to see the Community Fund support such wonderful local initiatives. The Tesco Community Fund is open to a wide variety of good causes or groups so if you know a local cause that could benefit from some funding, please nominate them in store today. And don’t forget to vote for your preferred cause each time you shop using your blue token, because it really does make a difference.”
Every 8 weeks, Tesco customers are invited to simply fill out a nomination form in store with three local causes being selected for the Tesco Community Fund. And at the end of each phase, blue token votes are counted and up to €1,000 is shared proportionally between the three local causes.
