We are delighted to announce we have bagged £12,000 from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative.
The supermarket teamed up with Groundwork to launch its Bags of Help initiative, which saw grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 – all raised from the 5p bag levy – being awarded to environmental and greenspace projects.
Pathways has been awarded First prize of £12,000
The results have been announced and we will now begin work on bringing our Nature Trail to life.
Over 4,500 groups up and down the country applied for grants from the scheme. These were whittled down to three in each of Tesco’s regions. To be a winner is therefore a wonderful achievement.
“We are so grateful to everyone that voted for us. As this was a local campaign it is gratifying to think that the local community have endorsed us with such tremendous support, thank you.”
Caroline Silke, Head of Community at Tesco, said: “Bags of Help has been a fantastic success. We have been overwhelmed by the response of our customers and the feedback has been brilliant. We can’t wait to see the money being put to use bringing these projects to life.”
