Tesco Bags of Help

All Things Bright and Beautiful

The Ark Pre-school is delighted to work in partnership with Tesco Bags of Help so together we can add beauty and child-friendly safe, soft surfaces to our outdoors area. We aim to lay astroturf and add plant pots to form a welcoming garden area for children, bees, birds and butterflies! A further area is to be laid with soft-play surfaces so children can play safely.

Tesco teamed up with Groundwork to launch its Bags of Help initiative across England and Wales. The scheme sees three community groups and projects in each of around 200 Tesco regions awarded grants of £5,000, £2,000 and £1,000 – all raised from the 5p bag charge.

Bags of Help offers community groups and projects 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 1 to 25 February on who should receive the £5,000, £2,000 and £1,000 awards.
