CASS has been successful in applying to TESCO under the Bags of Help Scheme. Here’s what TESCO told CASS recently…………………….
Your application to the Tesco Bags of Help Grant Scheme has been successful and your project will be put forward to a customer vote in Tesco stores during May and June 2018.
Your project along with the other two successful projects in your region will go forward to a vote in Tesco stores where their customers will decide the outcome by voting for their favourite project each time they shop. Voting will take place from Tuesday 1st May to Saturday 30th June 2018 and we will notify you at the end of July 2018 confirming the amount of funding you will receive.
The project with the highest number of votes across your region will receive £4,000 (or the amount that was requested up to this value), the second placed project £2,000 (or the amount that was requested up to this value), and the third placed project £1,000. To re-iterate, if you are first in the vote, you will receive the amount that you requested in your application.
Please see below a list of stores taking part in the voting on your project. Feel free to share this list of stores amongst your supporters and within your community.
