Tesco Bags of Help

Tesco has teamed up with Groundwork on its Bags of Help initiative in hundreds of regions across England and Wales. The scheme will see three community groups and projects in each of these regions 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 416 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 31 October to 13 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.

We have been successful in being one of the Community Groups which will benefit from this money.  We need you to help us by going into Tesco on Greystoke Avenue and voting for Fonthill School.  You can pick up tokens from any Tesco store and bring them into the school and we will take them to Tesco on Greystoke Avenue on your behalf.  The more votes we get the more money we get.  Plans have been drawn up to develop the KS1 Courtyard.
