Thanks for voting for us in the Tesco ‘Bags of Help’ scheme!
July 15 2019 – We’re yet to hear if we’ll be getting a massive cash boost from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative. Tesco teamed up with Groundwork, the environmental charity, to launch its community funding scheme, which sees grants of £4,000, £2,000 and £1,000 awarded to local community projects.
Three groups in every Tesco region were short-listed in May and June to receive the cash award and shoppers were invited to head along to Tesco stores to vote for who they think should take away the top grant.
Our Citizens Advice office in Lowestoft was one of the groups on the shortlist. Working closely with the local branch of Groundwork we are hoping to install energy saving measures in our Victorian building on Gordon Road, to create a welcoming environment and reduce our carbon footprint. With money raised from the Tesco scheme we hope to install modern, efficient heating, loft insulation, LED lighting and secondary glazing over the next year.
We’ll keep you posted!
