New Stage Curtains. Nutley War Memorial Trust calls out for votes to bag a share of Tesco’s bag fund.
Nutley War Memorial Trust is bidding to bag a massive cash boost from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative.
Tesco teamed up with Groundwork to launch its community funding scheme,
which sees grants of up to £4,000, up to £2,000 and £1,000 raised from carrier bag sales in Tesco stores awarded to local community projects.
Three groups in every Tesco region have been shortlisted to receive the cash award and shoppers are being invited to head along to Tesco stores to vote for who they think should take away the top grant.
Nutley War Memorial Trust is one of the groups on the shortlist.
Buying and Installing new Stage Curtains is our project
‘The War Memorial Hall is 45 years old. The stage curtains have had a lot of use and new ones are urgently needed. The primary school and pre-school as well as other groups will benefit from this project’
Voting is open in Uckfield and Heathfield Tesco stores throughout March and April. Customers will cast their vote using a token given to them at the check-out in store each time they shop.
Tesco’s Bags of Help project has already delivered over £40 million to 9,700 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.
Regular hall users are; Pre-school playgroup, Ashdown evergreens, Ballroom and Latin American Dancing, Children's Dance Class, Shortmat Bowls, Pilates, Nutley Horticultural Society, Nutley Historical Society, Jive Group, Maresfield Parish Council, Sarah dexter Zumba classes, Dance House uk.
