Tesco has teamed up with Groundwork on its Bag 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 form 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.
St Gabriel's Happy, Healthy Playground Project aims to transform the infant outdoor are by providing a range of play equipment, planting and exploring areas for the children to make the most of their outdoor learning.
