Blue Coat Needs Your Vote (please)!

2016 02 22 11.13.40 am

We are very excited to announce that Blue Coat will be getting a brand new outdoor play area, supported by funding from the new Tesco Bags of Help initiative! This new fund has been generated by the 5p carrier bag charge.

Blue Coat’s Play Beach will be a massive 60 tonne sand pit and outdoor play area located on the school field. It will be accessible to Blue Coat children during school hours, but also will have extended access to local community groups through a programme of special events.

The public (that means you!) will now vote in store from Saturday 27th February until Sunday 6th March on three local projects, deciding which project will win the £8,000, £10,000 or £12,000 awards.

We are guaranteed £8,000, but will be able to extend the project, equipment and storage further still if we win either of the larger awards.

WE NEED YOU! Please, please vote in store! Pass on this message to friends, family, neighbours and local clubs and organisations you are a member of. Every vote will count! Voting for our project will take place in the following stores:

  • Wotton-under-Edge Express
  • Dursley Cam Superstore
  • Tetbury Superstore
  • Cirencester Extra, Cirencester Metro, Chesterton Cirencester Express

Many thanks in advance for your support

Tesco has teamed up with Groundwork to launch its Bags of Help initiative in hundreds of
regions across England and Wales. The scheme will see three community groups and projects
in each of these regions awarded grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 – all raised from the
5p bag charge.

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.
The public will now vote in store from 27 February until 6 March on who should receive the
£12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 awards.
