Jeremy Hunt, MP for South West Surrey visited Haslemere Tesco in Lion Green on Friday 2nd December with a donation for Tesco's annual winter neighourhood food collection in partnership with the food distribution charity FareShare and Foodbank charity Trussell Trust.
“It is the ninth collection Tesco have run nationally and in the Haslemere store the generosity of our customers and colleagues is outstanding,” Haslemere Tesco community champion Anita Cumber said. “Tesco also top up any donations by 20 per cent of the total collected, which helps the charities grow and importantly means Tesco does not profit from any donation purchased on items donated.”
Jeremy said: "It was a pleasure to meet Tesco staff and customers and learn more about this initiative. It is such a great project where a small food donation can make a big difference to people's lives. The volume of food items donated each week by Haslemere Tesco customers and staff is remarkable and I am sure, much appreciated."
