Tesco's Grant Scheme Support Penkford School
Bags of Help is Tesco’s exciting local community grant scheme where the money raised from the sale of carrier bags is being used to fund thousands of local projects in communities right across the UK.
Launched in 2015, Bags of Help sees charities and community organisations awarded grants to fund local projects.
Three community projects in each local area will be voted on by customers in Tesco stores throughout the UK, with projects changing every other month. Following the vote, the project that received the most votes in its area will receive a grant of up to £4,000, second place receiving up to £2,000 and third place up to £1,000. Customers are given a token when they buy their shopping that they can use to make their choice using the voting units in most stores.
Penkford School's application has been successful and our project will be put forward to a customer vote in Tesco stores during January and February 2019. Penkford will use the grant money to purchase outdoor education and Forest School equipment for our pupils to use.
The stores that you can vote in during January and February 2019 are:
Haydock Superstore WA11 0TH
Haydock Vicarage Express WA11 0AY
Newton-Le-Willows Superstore WA12 9NB
