We are absolutely thrilled to have been awarded £10,000 funding from Tesco! You all went out and voted for us in-store and we came 2nd out of the 3 projects – SO A BIG THANK YOU TO YOU ALL! We send out congratulations to the other two projects 🙂
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. 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.
We hope that the extra funds will help us buy another couple of pieces of equipment in the trim trail or help us with the installation costs.
The funds will be released to us in April so we will get cracking with the project as soon as we can and hope it will be installed long before the summer!
