Love Local

Please get your Budgens Love Local Card; please use it!

“It’s everybody for himself.
We’re all in it together?
Don’t make me laugh! Such slogans are
For fair but not foul weather.”

Well, that’s a point of view, I guess,
But it’s not what we think:
At Budgens, sure we want to swim
But not when others sink.

And so if you agree with us
We hope you’ll let us give
A part of what you spend with us
To help your neighbours live

The better for our aid to those
That you will nominate
As worth your Budgens card’s support.
Which said, let’s celebrate!
