50+ SKILLS EXCHANGE CLUB CALLS OUT FOR VOTES TO BAG A SHARE OF BAG CHARGE FUND – HORSHAM AND CRAWLEY!

As you may be aware, a couple of months ago we reached the final stage of the Tesco Bags of Help Initiative in the Redhill area. We are now pleased to announce we have also been shortlisted in Horsham and we would really appreciate your support! The 50+ Skills Exchange Club 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 £4,000, £2,000 and £1,000 – all raised from the 5p bag levy – being 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. We’re ecstatic to announce that you will have the chance to vote for us in the following stores:
