We are delighted to be shortlisted as one of the winners of Tesco Bags of Help initiative!
Tesco has teamed up with Groundwork to launch its Bags of Help initiative across hundreds of regions in England and Wales. The scheme will see three community groups and projects in each region awarded grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 – all raised from the 5p bag charge. Bags of Help offers community groups and projects in each of Tesco’s 390 regions across the UK a share of revenue generated from the five pence charge levied on single-use carrier bags.Check the website for more info: http://www.tesco.com/bagsofhelp The public will now vote in store from 27 February until 6 March on who should receive the £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 awards. This generous grant will enable us to carry on necessary repairs in the garden, build a new infrastructure and purchase plants and shrubs! Please vote for us!
