Bags of Help


Tesco has teamed up with Groundwork to launch “Bags of Help” initiative across England and Wales. The scheme will see three local commit groups and projects 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.

The public will now vote in store from 27th February until 6th March 2016 on who should receive the £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 awards.  We have applied and been accepted by “Bags of Help” for financial assistance regarding extending the children’s playground park facilities for a trim trail in Riverside Park.  More information can be found on

So PLEASE vote at Tesco’s Ballards Lane from 27th February to support our cause. Thank you.
