Jealott’s Hill Community Landshare calls out for votes to bag a share of a £12.5 million carrier bag charge fund

Jealott’s Hill Community Landshare (JHCL) is bidding to bag a cash boost from the Tesco Bags of Help Initiative.

The supermarket has teamed up with Groundwork on it’s Bags of Help Initiative which see grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 – all raised from the 5p bag levy – being awarded to environmental and greenspace projects. JHLC is one of three groups on the shortlist to receive the cash award with the group with the most votes gaining the maximum prize.

JHCL is an inspirational six acre multi-purpose garden within Warfield Parish for community use in Berkshire.  The gardens welcome people with a disability or those from a disadvantaged background, supported by volunteers from the local community, to work on horticultural activities and create a haven for wildlife for all to enjoy.  Sharing skills and produce is at the heart of this project which is a partnership between Bracknell Forest Homes, Bracknell Town Council, Warfield Parish Council and Syngenta.

Shoppers are being invited to head along to Tesco stores to vote for who they think should take away the top grant, so why not pop along to your local store and show your support for this fantastic community project.

Voting is open in stores from October 31st to November 13th.
