Vote for Project Ability with Tesco Bags of Help!

Project Ability has been shortlisted to receive a grant from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative. 

Three groups in every Tesco region have been shortlisted to receive a cash award and this month shoppers are being invited to head along to Tesco stores to vote for who they think should take away the top grant. By voting for Project Ability, you will be helping our walking group!

Project Ability’s walking group helps people with disabilities and mental ill health meet up once a week to walk to cultural and heritage places of interest. They benefit from the exercise and from exploring their community.

“We are delighted to be on the shortlist for the Tesco Bags of Help scheme. Our walking group is accessed by people of all ages; it is a sociable, supportive group which welcomes everyone and gets people out and about and better connected to their community.” – Elisabeth Gibson, Executive Artistic Director, Project Ability.

Tesco teamed up with Groundwork to launch the monthly funding scheme, which sees grants of £5,000, £2,000 and £1,000 – all raised from the 5p bag levy – being awarded to local outdoor community projects. greenspace scotland is working with Groundwork to provide support to communities in Scotland.

Bags of Help offers community groups and projects 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 1 to 25 February on who should receive the £5,000, £2,000 and £1,000 awards.
