Wonderful News!

York Road Nursery is one of 3 finalists in our region for the Tescos Bags of Help initiative.

This means we will win a grant of at least £8,000, but with your help we could increase this to £12,000. We need your votes!!  You can vote in Tesco’s stores in Baldock and Royston between 31 October and 13 November 2016.

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.
