Tesco has teamed up with Groundwork to launch its ‘Bags of Help' initiative’ in hundreds of regions across England and Wales. The scheme will see three community groups and projects in each of these regions awarded grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 – all raised from the 5p bag charge.
The public will now vote in Tesco stores from 27 February until 6 March on who should receive the £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 awards.
We are delighted that we have been chosen as one of three community groups in this region to receive the funding.
We plan to develop our school grounds with the money we receive and we would be very grateful if you could ‘spread the word’ and ask friends and family to vote for us when they visit their nearest Tesco store.
