What is Tesco Bags of Help?
Bags of Help is a community grant scheme where money raised from the 5p bag charge from Tesco stores is used to fund local projects. Three community projects in each local area are voted on by customers in Tesco stores. 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.
What would I have to do?
If you live in the Hackney area, we’d love it if you could shop at any of the Tesco stores listed below. At the till, you will be given a token that you can use to make a choice using the voting units in most stores. If you drop this token into the unit marked “Pride Run 2017”.
You might need to ask Tesco staff for the blue token as they may not remember to give these out, especially at peak times.
