‘Every Little Helps’..... Tesco stay true to word

‘EVERY Little Helps’ is the well-known slogan of supermarket giant Tesco.

But in Hucknall, the company has not just given a little in its latest attempt to help the local community.

For it has donated the whopping total of £2,600 to the Hucknall Engage group. The cash will boost a furniture project, which offers donated items, ranging from tables to sofas, at a reduced price to disadvantaged families. It is run from the Under One Roof centre on Vine Terrace.

Hucknall Engage is the social action arm of the Churches Together In Hucknall, Linby And Papplewick organisation. It is involved in several projects, including the new Christian store on Watnall Road, Engage Gifts.

A Tesco spokesman said: “This donation reinforces our commitment to support local community initiatives.

“We are delighted to help Engage and know it will benefit greatly from this donation.”

Part of the cash from Tesco stems from an original donation in 2003 when the firm opened its superstore off Station Road.

It gave £1,500 towards a van designed to go out on to the streets and work with young people.

Because of cutbacks, this project was unsustainable, so Tesco agreed to transfer the original money and also boost the payout.
