Last month we let customers know that Cash for Kids would not be offering Christmas grants this year as their funding had been badly affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
To make up for this, we launched 'Maryhill Helps'. The aim of this new scheme was to support disadvantaged families with children aged 16 and under who would normally apply to Cash for Kids.
The scheme has been a real success with 299 children registered by parents in the Maryhill and Ruchill areas. In total, £5980 will be distributed to successful applicants in the form of Tesco gift vouchers.
Our staff will begin sending out the vouchers on Monday 14th December and we hope to have all of these sent by Monday 21st December.
We wish to say a HUGE thank you to all of the following companies who contributed funds to the Maryhill Helps scheme:
