Buskers play a big part in creating the mood and the environment in Tesco stores and malls. Unfortunately, during the recently concluded Movement Control Order (MCO), the buskers who brought so much liveliness to our malls were facing hardships as they lost their sources of income because of the closure of our malls and public gatherings.
Knowing this, Tesco had on two separate occasions reached out to the buskers' community during the MCO. First by chanelling a total of RM10,000 in cash vouchers to members of the Malaysian Buskers Club so they can purchase their necessities. The story was also covered by the media.
In late May, Tesco donated over RM2,000 worth of food items consisting of Tesco 3 in 1 Original Choco Malt Drink, Tesco UHT Milk 1 litre, Tesco Tuna in Spring Water 185g, Tesco Everyday Value Local Vermicelli 3kg, Tesco Assorted Biscuits 430g and kuih raya to the buskers in Tesco Shah Alam and Mutiara Damansara during Ramadan for the buskers to buka puasa with.
Consider this our thank you to the community who have always played a part in livening up our malls.
