Asda continue to support Cash for Kids in Scotland!

The staff have held instore fundraising events, community days and lots more! Asda Operations Director Craig Bonnar tells us why the company supports Cash for Kids in Scotland;

“Each year Cash for Kids in the East of Scotland alone receives more than 8,000 applications for help from families and social work departments. The support for Cash for Kids ensures that with the aid of your fundraising and donations, children facing financial, emotional and physical challenges are given encouragement and comfort. This can include helping families to buy Christmas presents and other treats that many of us take for granted. For the past 12 months Asda Stores in the East Central Scotland region have supported and raised an amazing £92,000 for Forth 1 & 2’s Cash for Kids through fundraising events in our stores. Asda have a long standing association and have worked with Cash for Kids in the west of Scotland raising £1.6 million in the last 6 years.

This year we are delighted that all our stores in Scotland will support Cash for Kids to include Clyde’s, Forth’s sister stations Radio Tay, Northsound, Borders & MFR.

As Scotland’s favourite supermarket we like to give something back to the community that we live and work in and that is why we have chosen to support Cash for Kids as all money raised in Scotland stays in Scotland. I would also like to say a big Thank You to our customers who are always very supportive in these challenging times. Without your support we could not help this great Scottish charity.”

MD’s Statement

Cash for Kids is privileged to be in a position where we can make things happen, but we know we can’t do this on our own. We need the support of individuals and groups of passionate people who share our vision to improve the lives of young people in the UK.

We are proud to operate an 80% contribution across the UK, with clear visibility on where the money goes and who it is helping. We are a group of local charities under the umbrella of one brand and all money raised locally stays in that area.

We strive to build close partnerships with companies and other charities so we can all grow for the good of our society, to make sure that disabled and disadvantaged children and young people have the same chances and opportunities as everyone else.

If you would like to work with Cash for Kids please contact us today.
