Congratulations! We are delighted to tell you that following the Bags of Help public vote in your local Tesco stores, your project came 1st and has been chosen by Tesco customers to receive a £12,000 grant.
Voting was held at all Tesco stores between Saturday 27th February 2016 and Sunday 6th March 2016 and proved to be hugely successful with over 8 million votes being cast by Tesco customers across England, Scotland and Wales.
Congratulations from us all again and we look forward to working with you and seeing your completed project and the difference that it will make in your local community.
