Tesco Ireland Launches 2011 Voucher Scheme to Give Equipment to Schools and Clubs



Tesco Ireland today, Tuesday 22nd February, announced the launch of this year’s Tesco for Schools & Clubs voucher collection programme. The annual scheme has given away over 400,000 pieces of equipment worth €16 million to Irish schools and clubs over the past 13 years. The scheme is the most successful programme of its kind in Ireland.

Last year alone, over €850,000 worth of school equipment and sports kit was delivered to schools and clubs around the country.

Running from the 28th February to the 8th of May, the voucher collection programme offers clubs and schools a huge catalogue of over 1,000 items to choose from, including everything from paint brushes to goal posts to laptops.

Commenting on the launch of the scheme, Kenny Jacobs, Marketing Director, Tesco Ireland said, “Tesco is delighted to continue supporting local schools and clubs throughout Ireland. Now more than ever we realise how important this scheme is to parents, coaches and teachers. This year we would like communities to get behind their local club or school and pledge their vouchers, in selected stores or online through our newly launched Facebook page.”

Bigger and better this year, the programme has been extended to include early learning material, as well as offering sports gear and equipment, technology, educational and creative tools.  Also this year teachers, parents, schools and clubs may interact on a dedicated Tesco for Schools & Clubs Facebook page.

To take part, schools and clubs may register at All equipment from this year’s Tesco for Schools & Clubs scheme will be delivered in autumn 2011.

Customers will receive one Tesco for Schools and Clubs voucher for every €10 spent in stores during this period. For more information on Tesco for Schools & Clubs visit or follow us on Facebook at
