Being so close to Tesco, we have made good links with their Community Manager and pupils get the opportunity to visit regularly during the school year. Some of these activities include:
- tasting food
- supermarket tours
- finding out where different foods come from
Tesco also support us by donating free fruit for nurture groups and work on whole school projects with us.
Bags of Help initiative
Tesco has teamed up with Groundwork on 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 416 regions across the UK a share of revenue generated from the 5p charge levied on single-use carrier bags. The public will now vote in store from 26 September to 9 October on who should receive the £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 awards. In total, there is over £12.5 million up for grabs.
