Tesco Bags of Help – We Need Your Help

Back in November 2016 the School Council completed an application for the Tesco Bags of Help Grant Scheme.  Tesco use the money they charge for plastic bags to grant funds to community projects and the School Council thought that the garden in memory of Charlie Girling could be something Tesco would support.

The application process was huge and the students had to measure and plan the garden to submit pictures, plans and quotations and, complete paperwork evidencing the impact the garden would have on the school and local community.

Tesco warned that they generally receive approaching 700 applications for each round of bids so it was very much fingers crossed.

But we did it!  We are through to the vote!
