The Friends of Sandall Park have been awarded £10,000 to install an outdoor gym in the park as part of the Tesco Bags of Help initiative.
We need to sort out the paperwork and then things will start moving in the coming weeks.
Our thanks to everyone who voted for our project.
Tesco teamed up with Groundwork to launch its Bags of Help initiative across England and Wales. The scheme has seen three community groups and projects in each region awarded grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 – all raised from the 5p bag charge.
Bags of Help offers community groups and projects in each of Tesco’s 390 regions across the UK a share of revenue generated from the five pence charge levied on single-use carrier bags.
The public voted in store to decide which local groups should receive the £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 awards.
