Two of the biggest names in the supermarket game have caught football fever in the wake of the FIFA World Cup.

Local stores Asda and Tesco are set to dust off their boots to raise money for local charities in a football match this Sunday, July 27, at James Ramsay Park.

The match will kick off on Sunday from 12noon to 4pm, and aims to fundraise for a variety of local charities. Asda Fraserburgh is encouraging the local community to nominate deserving charities who will then be chosen to receive the donation.

There will also be a variety of sports activities, rounders and, to end it all, a tug of war. With various stalls and a car boot sale, as well as bouncy castles, face painting, glitter tattoos and a barbecue, it is set to be a fun-filled day for the entire family.

Jeanette Rattray, the Community Life Champion at Asda Fraserburgh, said: “This is an excellent opportunity for both stores to give a little back to the community and I’m thrilled to support such a great cause.

“We are all really looking forward to the match, and getting behind local charities to help make a difference.

“Bring it on, Tesco!”
