TESCO Extra shoppers in Redditch will be able to buy pre-filled donation bags to give people a helping hand.

The store will be offering pre-filled donation bags available for customers to buy and donate to the charities FareShare and the Trussell Trust.

The bags will contain items that are most needed by local foodbanks and charities.

Customers will also get additional opportunities over the summer to round up their bills at the checkout to make it even easier to offer financial support.

Bags are available in stores until Sunday, September 3, alongside every Tesco store’s permanent collection point where customers can donate long-life food items all year round.

The option to round up at the Redditch tills is available to customers until 6 August and then again from August 28 to September 3.

Tesco head of community Claire de Silva said: “We’re really proud of our partnerships with FareShare and the Trussell Trust and we want to continue to find ways to help them.

“With many food banks struggling to meet the rising levels of need, and more people using food banks we wanted to make donating as easy as possible for customers that want to support their community.

“The donation bags will be available throughout the summer holidays, so it allows a real focus on families and children who need support.”
