The Tesco Ireland Charity Partner Programme gives our colleagues and customers the chance to pool their strengths and support a cause that is close to their hearts.
We started our Charity Partner Programme in 2001 and, to date, through the generosity and fundraising of Tesco colleagues, customers and their local communities, Tesco Ireland has raised over €19 million for good causes and charities in Ireland.
Our current Charity Partner is Temple Street Children's Hospital, whom we've been in partnership with since 2014.
Prior to that, we raised €2 million for our last charity partner Aware, to help fund services for individuals, families and communities impacted by depression in Ireland. Our fundraising was transformative for Aware, enabling them to offer free education and support programmes to thousands of adults across the country and a free positive mental health programme to secondary school students in every county.
Other charities we have supported include the Irish Cancer Society, the Alzheimer Society of Ireland, Down Syndrome Society, Childline, Irish Hospice, MS Ireland, Temple Street Children’s Hospital, Make A Wish Foundation.
