Ever wondered where that 5p or 10p goes when you need an extra bag when you visit the supermarket?
Bags of Help is Tesco’s exciting local community grant scheme where the money raised by the sale of carrier bags is being used to fund thousands of local projects in communities right across the UK.
Telford Crisis Support (Telford Foodbank) is bidding to bag a massive cash boost from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative.
Grants of £4,000, £2,000 and £1,000 raised from carrier bag sales in Tesco stores will be awarded to local community projects.
Three groups in every Tesco region have been shortlisted to receive the cash award and shoppers are being invited to head along to Tesco stores to vote for who they think should take away the top grant.
The stores that will be taking part are:
Tesco Wrekin retail park
Tesco Express in Hadley
Tesco Express in Wellington (Haygate)
Tesco Express Bridgnorth (High st)
Tesco Express Bridgnorth (Esso petrol)
This will be taking place in November and December so please if you are offered a token at the checkout, consider your local Foodbank!
