The Tesco Bags of Help scheme is offering us a grant to install a composting toilet on our site. This should cover purchase of a strong little hut and the toilet, as well as installation, if we are lucky. You can help by casting a vote for our project next time you are shopping in a local Tesco between 31 Oct and 13 Nov.Tesco explain:
Tesco has teamed up with Groundwork on its Bags of Help initiative in hundreds of regions across England and Wales. The scheme will see three community groups and projects in each of these regions awarded grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 – all raised from the 5p bag charge.
Bags of Help offers community groups and projects in each of Tesco’s 416 regions 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 from 26 September to 9 October on who should receive the £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 awards. In total, there is over £12.5 million up for grabs.
Huge thanks to Angie Wilshaw for putting our bid for this money together!
