NMC to receive Tesco Bags of Help Grant for Accessible Allotments Project
The NMC has been shortlisted to receive a grant from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative.
Tesco has teamed up with Groundwork on its Bags of Help initiative, which see grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 – all raised from the 5p bag levy – being awarded to environmental and greenspace projects. NMC's "Accessible Allotments" is one of these lucky projects.
An under-utilised part of the NMC garden will be transformed into fully accessible allotments, with raised beds and an accessible greenhouse. It means we will be able to grow our own fruit and veg, hold activity days and allow the NMC and wider community to take part and enjoy gardening.
To help us win one of the higher amounts we need your votes. In order to vote please visit Tesco in Northwich or Tesco in Middlewich. You will be given a token with every transaction and encouraged to vote for the project you would like to see receive funding.
The project with the most votes will receive £12,000 followed by £10,000 and then £8,000.
