Bags of Help offers community groups and projects in each of Tesco’s 416 regions across the UK a share of revenue generated from the 5p charge levied on single-use carrier bags. Customers can vote for their charity of choice in the Tesco stores closest to where the charity is based. There are three prizes available in each round: £8,000, £10,000 and £12,000.
We are OVER THE MOON to let you all know that in the lastest round, we have come first in the public vote! That means we’ll be receiving the enormous sum of £12,000 to create “Toby’s Garden” at our lovely new site on Earth Balance.
Coming first means that not only can we landscape the garden, but we can also add something extra to make it really special. Our ideas include a wooden play train, water play feature and musical sensory equipment. These extras will promote social and imaginative play and improve motor skills. And of course, they’ll make Toby’s Garden even more fun!
What a brilliant start to our week! And the very best early Christmas present for Toby House too! We can’t wait to get started now in the New Year.
