Tesco Ireland has announced the 450 local projects that will participate in the new cycle of the Tesco Community Fund commencing 12th June.

In Kildare, the Tesco Community Fund has supported 567 local projects to date donating over €147,000.

For the next eight weeks, Tesco’s stores across Kildare will be using a blue token in store to support a wide range of local projects including Kilcock Canoe Club, Celbridge GAA and Clane Boxing Club.

At the end of the eight week cycle, Tesco stores will support these 450 local projects nationally with €120,000 worth of donations.
