We are excited because our Wild Play project has been shortlisted to win a grant from www.tesco.com/bagsofhelp. Tesco teamed up with Groundwork on its Bags of Help initiative England and Wales which distributes the charge levied on single use plastic bags £!2.5 million in total. In our region (the north) three community groups and projects will be awarded a grant of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 – all raised from the 5p bag charge. If you think our project should get the top grant and would like to support us you can vote in Tesco stores from the 26th September to 9th October.
