Tesco Bags of Help Grant – Buckinghamshire

The Colne Valley has the chance to benefit from Tesco’s Bags of Help grant scheme, but we need your help!

About Tesco Bag’s of Help

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 31 December on who should receive the £5,000, £2,000 and £1,000 awards. For more information please visit www.tesco.com/bagsofhelp.

How Will We Use the Grant?

The Bags of Help grant will go towards improving Denham Country Park’s playground. The  playground will benefit from more swings and Bug Hotels (homes for creepy crawlies). The playground is a big part of why people visit Denham Country Park, and by extension, the Colne Valley Visitor Centre, and the more facilities we can offer, the more people we can introduce to the Colne Valley as a whole.

Who Benefits?

Families will benefit from more play equipment, allowing more children to use the playground at once, and swinging is a great form of exercise suitable for all weathers.

Bugs will also benefit as we provide an extra habitat for them, which children will then be able to view and learn about.
