EXCITING NEWS!!!! We are delighted to be a recipient of Tesco’s #BagsofHelp initiative. We have been chosen to receive a grant to assist Warrington schools to get children out into nature. How much funding we get depends on public vote so PLEASE please visit your local store and help make a difference in your community. Tesco has teamed up with Groundwork to launch its Bags of Help initiative in hundreds of regions across England and Wales. The scheme will see 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.
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 27 February until 6 March on who should receive the £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 awards.
We will be using one of these awards to fund projects in schools across Warrington, by getting the children involved in designing and building their own schools outdoor space, creating natural outdoor learning environments like planting trees, installing willow tunnels, raised beds, butterfly gardens and wild spaces. How many schools and pupils we can help will depend on how many votes we get, so please vote for us in your local Tesco store.
Lets get Warrington kids outside and into nature!
Please visit your local store and help make a difference in your community.
