Update – Banchory Men’s Shed entry into the Bags of Help scheme has now ended (30th June 2018)
The Banchory Men’s Shed are currently enjoying “pole position” (that is, the box nearest the door) for the current round of the Tesco Bags of Help scheme.
From their web site:
“Bags of Help is Tesco’s exciting local community grant scheme where the money raised by the sale of carrier bags is being used to fund thousands of local projects in communities right across the UK.”
When you check out at Tesco don’t forget to see if you qualify for carrier bag tokens and if you want to support the Banchory Men’s Shed’s fundraising drive, please drop them in our compartment of the transparent boxes to the right of the out door.
Our participation as a nominated Charity for this round of Bags of Help runs from 1st May to 30th June and we would love it if you would drop your blue tokens in our box. Depending on the level of support we should receive between £1000 and £4000 to put towards our fund raising efforts – we are intending to allocate these funds to Phase 2 of the premises.
Thanks, and keep those tokens coming !
