    ‘The first five years of a child’s life are the most influential in shaping their developmental future, and childhood hearing loss can be challenging and isolating without the right help at the right time.’

    Some of the previous causes that have benefitted from the donations include breakfast clubs, food banks, Meals on Wheels, playgrounds and green spaces.

    Claire De Silva, head of communities and local media at Tesco, said: ‘These events were not only a really fun occasion in store, with our colleagues and customers really keen to get involved, but also an important opportunity for people to choose a local good cause to receive the £10,000 grant. Hopefully, this will help to make a difference to everyone they continue to support within our communities.’
