Tesco customers' £4,000 boost for healthy eating charity HALFF
Axminster based healthy eating charity – HALFF – has received more than a little help from Tesco shoppers – a cheque for £4,000.
The money was raised through the store’s Bags of Help scheme where customers can vote to support a local worthy cause.
Two other projects receiving money from this round were 1st Lym Valley Scout Group £2,000 and Touch Network £1,000.
Tesco Bags of Help is a scheme administered by Groundwork, a UK Environmental Charity. It is estimated that so far more than £43 million has been invested in local projects across the country. 42 projects voted in Axminster Store have received over £141,000 since 2016. Proceeds generated from the sale of plastic bags go into the Bags of Help Community Grants Scheme.
If any local charity or project would like to apply for Bags of Help, please pop into Axminster store and meet Tracey Rowe, its Community Champion, in the New Year.
