EXCITING NEWS!!!! We are delighted to be a recipient of Tesco’s #BagsofHelp initiative. We have been chosen to receive a grant to create a beautiful guided walkway, through Manor Farm Country Park leading to the wreck of Henry V’s flagship Grace Dieu at the bottom of the River Hamble. Not only will this encourage people to get out and explore nature but it will celebrate the region’s rich, and often overlooked, place in history.
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.
