We are delighted to announce we came second in the Tesco "Bags of Help" scheme and have been awarded £2,000. The money will go towards a new bowling machine and roll-on net, which will both help with adult and Colts training sessions.
Thank you to everyone who helped us achieve this!
Tesco teamed up with Groundwork to launch its Bags of Help funding initiative, which sees grants of up to £5,000, £2,000 and £1,000 – all raised from the 5p bag levy – being awarded to thousands of local community projects every year.
Millions of shoppers voted in stores up and down the country.
Voting ran in stores throughout February with customers choosing which local project they would like to get the top award using a token given to them at the check-out.
Since launching in 2015, Bags of Help has awarded more than £28.5 million across more than 4,000 local projects.
Funding is available to community groups and charities looking to fund local projects that bring benefits to communities. Anyone can nominate a project and organisations can apply online. To find out more visit www.tesco.com/bagsofhelp
Bags of Help is supported by money from the five pence charge levied on single-use carrier bags.
So far Bags of Help has awarded over £28.5 million to more than 4,000 local community projects.
