Pike Fold Forest School bags £4,000 from tesco's community grants scheme.

We are delighted to announce we have bagged £4,000 from Tesco’s Bags of Help community grant scheme. 

Bags of Help is run in partnership with environmental charity Groundwork, and sees grants raised from the sale of carrier bags awarded to thousands of local community projects every year. Since launching in 2015, it’s provided more than £40 million to over 9,700 local community projects.

Millions of shoppers have voted in Tesco stores up and down the country and it can now be revealed Pike Fold Forest School has been awarded £4,000!

Work will now begin on bringing the project to life which, will include an expansion of the current forest school site to benefit more children at Pike Fold. 

Alec Brown, Tesco’s Head of Community, said: 

“Bags of Help has been a fantastic success and we’ve been overwhelmed by the response from customers. It’s such a special scheme because it’s local people who decide how the money will be spent in their community. We can’t wait to see the projects come to life.”

Voting ran in stores throughout September and October with customers choosing which local project they would like to get the top award using a token given to them at the checkout. Thanks to everyone who helped to vote for us!
