Last week I visited the local Sainsbury’s in Gourock to hear more about how they contribute to Inverclyde’s community. I also heard about the Active Kids initiative which aims to inspire healthy and active lifestyles. Customers earn vouchers which schools and clubs can then exchange for sporting and cooking equipment. The initiative is now in its tenth year and have donated £9122.37 worth of equipment and experience to schools specifically in Inverclyde.
The Gourock store also raise money for Ardgowan Hospice, totalling £800 in the last 6 months. I am glad that Inverclyde’s highstreets accommodate both small and large businesses alike and I am always encouraged when businesses within our area do their bit to give back to our community.
