Please vote for a new minibus for 4th Formby Scouts in Tesco's Formby

The 4th Formby Scout Group has been shortlisted in Tesco's 'Bags of help' initiative. They need your help to secure the top prize of £4,000 to get a new minibus. Please vote for them in Tesco by putting a token in their slot at the front of Tesco Formby store.

Voting has already started and will continue until 30th June. The project with the highest number of votes across our region will receive up to £4,000, the second placed project up to £2,000 and the third placed project £1,000.

The 4th Formby Scout Group said: "We have had a long and faithful service from our old minibus but, the time has come to replace it because it is costing too much in repairs."

The other two groups are The Fillies GFC in Netherton and Healthy Waterways Trust in Ince Blundell.

Tesco supermarket teamed up with Groundwork to launch its Bags of Help initiative, which sees grants of thousands of pounds being awarded to environmental and green space projects. The 5p carrier bag charge is used to fund grants to improve local parks, hold community events, support sports groups and more. The grants are managed by the community charity Groundwork UK.

The 4th Formby Scout Group (along with the other two successful projects in our region) will go forward to a vote in Tesco stores where customers will decide the outcome by voting for their favourite project each time they shop.

The three finalists are: 1 - The 4th Formby Scout Group - New Minibus

Customers vote

Three community projects in each local area will be voted on by customers in our stores across England, Scotland and Wales, with the projects changing every other month. Each time you shop you will be offered a token at the checkout and be able to vote for your favourite project.

Grants are awarded

At the end of the voting period, all three projects will receive funding in each local area. The amount of funding available for individual local projects will range from £1,000 to £4,000 – keep a look out for the results in store and online.

This money is already making a huge difference to thousands of local communities.
