Great news - Grow has been shortlisted for a public vote in Tesco's Bags of Help initiative. You can vote for us by putting your blue tokens in the Grow box in Tescos Express Stores across Brighton and Hove during the months of July and August. Please help spread the word amongst your friends and family and let's get voting - the project with the most votes receives £4000.
Tesco teamed up with Groundwork to launch its community funding scheme, which sees grants of £4,000, £2,000 and £1,000 – all raised from the 5p bag levy – being awarded to local community projects.
Bags of Help offers community groups and projects across the UK a share of revenue generated from the 5p charge levied on single-use carrier bags. The public will now vote in store during July and August on who should receive the £4,000, £2,000 and £1,000 awards. For more info on the scheme visit www.tesco.com/bagsofhelp
