We need bags of help from you!

We are delighted to announce that our ‘Pennies for the Playgrounds’ appeal has been shortlisted for a public vote in Tesco’s Bags of Help initiative during March and April 2017.

Tesco teamed up with Groundwork and greenspace scotland to launch its Bags of Help initiative across England, Wales and Scotland. The scheme sees three community groups and projects in each of around 200 Tesco regions awarded grants of £5,000, £2,000 and £1,000 – all raised from the 5p bag charge.

Bags of Help offers community groups and projects across the UK a share of revenue generated from the 5p charge levied on single-use carrier bags. The public will now vote in store throughout March and April on who should receive the £5,000, £2,000 and £1,000 awards.

To vote, you will need to make a purchase within store of any value. You will receive one token per transaction and it’s not necessary to purchase a carrier bag in order to receive a token. Please share this with your family and friends and ask them to vote for us too!
