Supermarket giant Tesco is to hold its annual charity 'Communi-Tea' party in Donegal later this month.

The Communi-Tea party will take place again this month in Donegal on Saturday, June 16 from 12pm-4pm.

The popular community event returns as donations to over 80 local causes in the county reach over €24,000 to date.

Across Ireland, Tesco has supported 11,000 community projects donating over €3 million through the Tesco Community Fund.

The Communi-Tea parties are a great opportunity for all those that have benefited from the Community Fund; including schools, sports clubs, animal shelters, local charities and many more, to call into their local store and enjoy a cup of tea with friends and neighbours.

Customers and those who would like to find out more about the Tesco Community Fund and how they can get involved are also encouraged to call into the store in Donegal and learn more from local community groups, charities and Tesco staff.

Christine Heffernan, Director of Corporate Affairs, Tesco Ireland said: “It’s thanks to customers in Donegal voting with their blue tokens every time they shop that our stores have been able to support over 80 local causes in the county, donating a total of over €24,000 to date.

“Irish people have long been known for their strong commitment to charitable and community causes, and this characteristic has helped to make our Community Fund so successful.

“With the top 3 causes being schools, health initiatives and charity activities most popular in our Donegal store, we’re looking forward to welcoming customers to our Communi-Tea parties on Saturday 16th June to acknowledge the huge difference they are making.

“The Community Fund is driven by local people for local people, because communities themselves know best where such help is needed.”
