Woking Street Angels are bidding to bag a massive cash boost from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative.
Tesco teamed up with Groundwork to launch its community funding scheme, which sees grants of up to £4,000, up to £2,000 and £1,000 raised from carrier bag sales in Tesco stores 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.
Woking Street Angels is one of the local groups on the shortlist. We thank Tesco for selecting us as one of the three recipients of the money raised from selling carrier bags, and encourage all our members and supporters to cast their vote for us whenever they shop in Tesco’s over the next few weeks.
Voting is open in Tesco stores throughout May and June. Customers will cast their vote using a token given to them at the check-out in store each time they shop. You can cast your vote for Woking Street Angels at Tesco or Tesco Express in Brooklands, Chobham Station, Knaphill, West Byfleet or Woking.
Tesco’s Bags of Help project has already delivered over £40 million to 9,700 projects up and down the UK. Tesco customers get the chance to vote for three different groups every time they shop. Every other month, when votes are collected, three groups in each of Tesco’s regions will be awarded funding.
