Tesco Bags of Help Bid

UPDATE: Voting has been delayed until the 13th Oct - 13th Nov 2016

Holy Cross Primary is bidding to bag a massive cash boost from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative.

The supermarket has teamed up with Groundwork on its Bags of Help initiative, which see grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 – all raised from the 5p bag levy – being awarded to environmental and greenspace projects. Three groups in each of Tesco’s 416 regions have been shortlisted to receive the cash award.  This month shoppers are being invited to head along to Tesco stores to vote for Holy Cross Primary is one of the groups on the shortlist.

Improvements to our outside classroom and play areas will be a fantastic opportunity for us to really improve our school, both for the community and for our children.  We can’t wait to see how our new area will look - thank you Tesco!

Voting is open in stores from 26 September to 9 October. Customers will cast their vote using a token given to them at the check-out in store each time they shop. This is the second round of the initiative: the first round saw approximately eight million shoppers vote in stores up and down the country earlier this year.  Please also encourage your family and friends to vote for Holy Cross – the more vote we receive the better the chance of securing the higher grant.

We will keep you informed of the outcome.  A big thank you to our Parent Helper, Claire Snowdon, for all her efforts in completing and securing our successful bid.
