We are delighted to announce that we have been selected to receive a £12,000 award grant from Bags of Help towards the refurbishment of our garden.

Thank you to all of you who voted for our Garden project!

  • We are now in the planning phase and ready to start with the project in the coming months.
  • Watch this space!

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.
