Dorset Wildlife Trust (DWT) is pleased to announce that it has been selected by Tesco and Groundwork to help launch the new ‘Bags of Help’ initiative. Three community groups and projects in hundreds of regions across England Wales will be awarded grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 – all raised from the 5p bag charge.
The public will be invited to vote in store from 27th February until 6th March, on who should receive the awards.
Bags of Help offers community groups and projects in each of Tesco’s 390 regions across the UK a share of revenue generated from the five pence charge levied on single-use carrier bags.
Making improvements to Upton Heath for people to visit
If we are successful with this scheme, we will spend the money on our Upton Heath nature reserve, improving signage to help people find their way around the reserve, new information points to enable them to better understand the site and what’s there, and also provide things like easy access gates so people with reduced mobility can also enjoy the space.
Please vote for us in store!
We’d be very grateful for as many votes as possible, so please spread the word. Here’s a list of the local stores you can vote in:
Blandford Forum, Broadstone Poole Express, Poole Fernside Road Express, Lilliput Poole Express, Lytchett Poole Express, Bournemouth Road Poole Express, Poole Quay Express, Sandbanks Express, Poole Walisdown Road Express, Poole Ringwood Road Express, Poole Extra, Poole Fleets CNR Extra and Poole Superstore.
