Help us raise up to £4,000 with Tesco Bags of Help!
We are pleased to announce that we will be one of three charities you can vote for at a number of Tesco stores in Eastbourne, Pevensey and Polegate throughout July and August!
Bags of Help is Tesco’s local community grant scheme. The money raised by the sale of carrier bags is being used to fund thousands of local projects in communities right across the UK.
The charity that receives the most votes will win a £4,000 grant. Second place will get £2,000 and third will get £1,000.
What will we do with the money?
Crafty Companions will give isolated lonely Eastbourne residents a reason to leave their homes and come and socialise. The friendly crafty sessions will involve creating items such as knitted hats and blankets for stillborn babies, card making, jewellery making and furniture painting, as well as artwork to help release emotions and overcome traumatic events and more.
How can you vote?
It couldn’t be easier! Every time you shop, you will be given a token with each transaction (please ask if you aren’t given one automatically!). You then simply go to the voting unit in the store and drop it into your chosen charity’s section.
Shop online? Not to worry, you can bring your receipt to your nearest store, show it to a member of staff and they will give you a token.
