We are very excited to announce that we have been nominated for this year’s Bags of Help scheme. Tesco has teamed up with Groundwork on its Bags of Help initiative across Scotland. The scheme will see three community groups and projects awarded grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 – all raised from the 5p bag charge. Greenspace Scotland are working with Groundwork to support Scottish communities.
Bags of Help offers community groups and projects in each of Tesco’s regions 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 from 31st October to 13th November on who should receive the £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 awards. In total, there is over £12.5 million up for grabs. The stores to vote for our School in are
Tesco Extra, Belhaven Rd, Wishaw
Tesco Express, Windmillhill St, Motherwell
Tesco Express, Coltness Rd, Wishaw
Please remember to ask for a voting token with each transaction you make at these stores!
Any monies which we are awarded will be used to develop the new outdoor area at the school, we already have our eye on some great new equipment for the children to use.
You can find out more about the scheme at www.tesco.com/bagsofhelp and on twitter @Tesco_Scotland. Please ask all your friends and family to visit the store and vote for us and to share the information on their social media accounts too, the more people who know about it and vote for us the better chance we have of getting an award!
Thank You for your Support
