Tesco Bags of Help
Please vote for Haughton by 13th November
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 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 the revenue generated from the 5p charge levied on single-use
carrier bags. The public will now vote in store from 31st October - 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.
We have put in an application for some money to improve the football facilities at
the playing field and also to protect the smaller children by erecting fencing around
the younger children’s equipment, so stopping them running onto the football pitch
when a match is in progress, and also to try and stop dogs fouling around the play
equipment. (It is illegal and we provide proper gloves and bins). We are now looking
for all our villagers to vote for us in one of the three local Tesco stores in Stafford.
TESCO Express on Stone Road
TESCO Express on Wolverhampton Road
TESCO Extra on Newport Road.
The more people vote for us the more money we will get.
