Tesco Bags of Help

Swim Torquay Ltd are bidding to bag a massive cash boost from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative.

Tesco teamed up with Groundwork to launch its community funding scheme, which sees grants of £4,000, £2,000 and £1,000 awarded to local community projects.

Three groups in every Tesco region have been shortlisted to receive the cash award and shoppers are being invited to head along to Tesco stores to vote for who they think should take away the top grant.

We are delighted to announce that we are one of the groups on the shortlist.

Our project will provide young people in our coastal town, with an education in Water Safety through the RLSS’s Water Safety Award, Rookie Lifeguard Awards and Swim England’s National Plan for Teaching Swimming. 

Voting is open in all Tesco stores in May and June 2019 and customers will cast their vote using a token given to them at the check-out in store each time they shop. Here is a list of the stores that you can vote for us in:

2304    BARTON TORQUAY EXP      TQ2 8HW Express
