Amazing, amazing, amazing news!
Thanks to everyone voting in Tesco stores, we have been awarded the first prize of £12,000 in the Tesco Bags of Help scheme!
The team are all over the moon, and we’d like to thank everyone who voted, spread the word and showed their support for us!
We are excited to announce Dane Valley Woods has won a major new grant proposal, with a guaranteed £8,000 but we could win more with your help!
Tesco has teamed up with Groundwork to launch its Bags of Help initiative across England and Wales. The scheme will see three community groups and projects 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.
Dane Valley Woods has been shortlisted in the Thanet region, and the public will now vote in store from 27 February until 6 March on who should receive the £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 awards.
To help us, please spread the word, and go into stores and vote for us during the voting period!
