Clear Sky Children’s Charity is 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 raised from carrier bag sales in Tesco stores awarded to local community projects.

How to vote for Clear Sky

Clear Sky as well as two other groups in every Tesco region have been shortlisted to receive the cash award. Funds raised for Clear Sky will go towards helping vulnerable and disadvantaged primary school children from the local area develop good mental health through Play & Creative Arts Therapy.  Vote for us every time you shop at the following stores during March and April and you can help us to bag that top grant. All you have to do is to drop the blue tokens provided into community funding unit marked Clear Sky:

Tesco Express, Cholsey, Wallingford, OX10 9ND 

Tesco Express, Cockcroft, Didcot, OX11 8LL

Sophia Giblin, Clear Sky’s Chief of Enthusiasm & Optimism (CEO) said:

“We are delighted to have been shortlisted to receive a cash award towards the important work we do with local children who have had a difficult start in life. This money will make a big difference to the amount of children who can benefit from our support and we would really appreciate your votes in store for this great community funding initiative.”

Voting closes on 30th May with the amount of funding being announced by the end of May.
