Attention Flitwick Tesco Shoppers!

Submitted by on July 11, 2017 – 10:22 am2 Comments

Next time you’re doing your Tesco’s shop in Flitwick, make sure you grab one of the tokens from your cashier and pop them into the Forest of Marston Vale slot in the Bags of Help box! 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.The Forest of Marston Vale has been successfully chosen as one of the three charity projects represented in store through July and August, and whoever gets the most tokens from the community gets the highest grant!

We would be putting the grant towards our very exciting ‘Forest Explorer pack’ project – giving local schools and families a chance to  get out in our woodlands and discover the magic of trees!

Simply ask for  a token each time you shop with a cashier in the Tesco’s store (as far as we’re aware, you can’t do this at self service but if you find out otherwise, let us know!)


Some more info…

Tesco’s Bags of Help project has already delivered over £30 million to more than 4,600 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. Lindsey Crompton, Head of Community at Tesco, said: “We are absolutely delighted to open the voting for July and August. There are some fantastic projects on the shortlists and we can’t wait to see them come to life in hundreds of communities.”
