After 7 months of hard work, our Community Garden Project supported by Tesco Bags of Help is now complete. We celebrated this achievement during our Wellbeing Day on 7th October with many workshops and activities taking place in the garden.
We are also delighted to announce the launch of our new Gardening Club that will be in charge of maintaining the garden and planting vegetables.
We would like to extend our thanks to all volunteers who invested time and energy in making this project happen. The refurbishment of our Community Garden is a real success and reflects our efforts in making our organisation sustainable.
Tesco teamed up with Groundwork to launch its Bags of Help initiative across England and Wales. The scheme has seen 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.
The public voted in store to decide which local groups should receive the £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 awards, 2,421 organisations from Tesco’s 400 regions up and down the UK will receive a share of the Bags of Help fund.
