Following the end of the two week voting in Tesco stores, the Bags of Help team are currently collecting votes from all stores and finalising results. They will be in touch by the end of November with confirmation of our grant award.
Thanks to everyone who voted for the Vikings and the Saxon Noble King Play Equipment project at the Recreation Ground.
Our project has been shortlisted for a public vote in Tesco’s Bags of Help initiative between 31 October and 14 November 2016. Please support the Oliver’s Battery Project by voting in store for the “Vikings and the Saxon Noble King” project at the Oliver’s Battery Recreation Ground.
Voting: a token should be given by Tesco checkout staff with every purchase, irrespective of the value, which can be used to vote for one of three projects. You are encouraged to vote for the “Vikings and the Saxon Noble King” Oliver’s Battery Project! NB you can vote each time you visit the store and make a purchase.
Locations: the Tesco Stores that are taking part are Tesco Extra at Easton Lane in Winnall, Tesco Express at 55 Priors Dean Road in Harestock and Tesco Express at Andover Road Esso.
There are volunteering opportunities to help shape the Recreation Ground and keep it a safe, stimulating and friendly to visit. We are planning to start by improving the play equipment for toddlers.
If you would like to be involved, please get in touch to let us know you are interested.
