Customers will decide how the funding is shared by voting for their preferred cause in store. From this week on, every time customers shop in any Tesco store in Mayo, they will receive a token of goodwill to place in the donation box of the local good cause they would most like to support. Every six weeks, the number of tokens is counted and up to €1,000 is distributed proportionally between three local good causes.
