Stoke Poges is one of three regional finalists in Tesco’s Bags of Help initiative. 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.
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DO?
If you are in Gerrards Cross Tesco from 31 October to 13 November please vote for Stoke Poges Parish Council.
There will be three causes to vote for. Of the three we will be awarded the above amounts dependent on how many votes are cast, in other words, MORE VOTES = MORE MONEY.
WHAT ARE WE HOPING TO DO WITH THE FUNDING?

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.
