  • HELP US WITH YOUR TESCO TOKENS THIS JULY!

    AUTHOR: // CATEGORY: News

    The Fraser Centre Community Trust is bidding to bag a massive cash boost from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative at Tesco Musselburgh.

    Tesco teamed up with Groundwork to launch its community funding scheme, which sees grants of £4,000, £2,000 and £1,000 raised from carrier bag sales in Tesco stores awarded to local community projects. Greenspace Scotland is working with Groundwork to provide support to communities in Scotland.

    Three groups in every Tesco region have been shortlisted to receive the cash award and shoppers are being invited to head along to Tesco stores to vote for who they think should take away the top grant.
    The Fraser Centre Community Trust is one of the groups on the shortlist.

    The Trust is aiming to rebuild a derelict former picture house into a vibrant community hub for learning, development, arts & entertainment in the heart of Tranent. The grant from Tesco Bags of Help will specifically be used towards equipment in our new kitchen and café.

    David Orr Project & Development Manager for the Trust said: “We are delighted to be selected for an award, which will go directly towards essential equipment for our community café within our new building. We would like to thank the Tesco Bags of Help programme for their generous support in helping us to provide a new community hub in the town. To our supporters please ensure you get your tokens from the checkout at the Musselburgh branch and vote for us throughout July!

    Voting is open throughout July. Customers will cast their vote using a token given to them at the check-out in store each time they shop.

    Tesco’s Bags of Help project has already delivered over £52 million to more than 16,000 projects up and down the UK. Tesco customers get the chance to vote for three different groups every time they shop. Every other month, when votes are collected, three groups in each of Tesco’s regions will be awarded funding.

    Tony McElroy, Tesco’s Head of Communications in Scotland, said:“Bags of Help has been a fantastic success and we’ve been overwhelmed by the response from customers. It’s such a special scheme because it’s local people who decide how the money will be spent in their community. There are some fantastic projects on the shortlists and we can’t wait to see these come to life in hundreds of communities.”

    Emma Halliday, Community Enabler Coordinator at greenspace scotland, said:
    “Bags of Help continues to enable local communities up and down the UK to improve the local spaces and places that matter to them. The diversity of projects that are being funded shows that local communities have a passion to create something great in their area. We are pleased to be able to be a part of the journey and provide support and encouragement to help local communities thrive.”
