Hollingworth bid for Tesco cash boost
Monday 27th February 2017 11:07 SportsPosted by Mark Phillip

Hollingworth Cricket Club 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 £5,000, £2,000 and £1,000 – all raised from the 5p bag levy – being 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.

Hollingworth Cricket Club is one of the groups on the shortlist. The club is looking for funds to support new coaches at the club and to improve facilities. The aim of the ‘Owzat – Cricket In Your Community project is to increase junior participation in cricket within the local community.

Hollingworth chairman Peter Morris said: “We play in the Derbyshire and Cheshire league and have two senior teams and three junior teams.

“We are constantly trying to improve our facilities and provide better coaching to our players – the funding that we could get from Tesco would give us a massive boost in supporting the development of our junior players.”

Voting is open in stores throughout March and April. Customers will cast their vote using a token given to them at the check-out in store each time they shop.

Tesco’s Bags of Help project has already delivered over £27 million to more than 3,500 projects up and down the UK.

Tesco customers get the chance to vote for three different groups every time they shop. Every other month, when votes are collected, three groups in each of Tesco’s regions will be awarded funding.

Lindsey Crompton, Head of Community at Tesco, said: “We are absolutely delighted to open the voting for March and April. There are some fantastic projects on the shortlists and we can’t wait to see them come to life in hundreds of communities.”

Groundwork’s National Chief Executive, Graham Duxbury, said: “We’ve been thrilled to see the diversity of projects that have applied for funding, ranging from outdoor classrooms, sports facilities, community gardens, play areas and everything in between. “We’re looking forward to learning the results of the customer vote and then supporting each group to bring their project to life.”

Funding is available to community groups and charities looking to fund local projects that bring benefits to communities. Anyone can nominate a project and organisations can apply online. To find out more visit www.tesco.com/bagsofhelp

 

HCC has applied for funding for coaches and community engagement through Tesco - Bags Of Help scheme (http://www.groundwork.org.uk/Sites/tescocommunityscheme

We have been selected for in store voting and we now desperately need people to vote and help get the club selected. It takes over £6k each year just to keep the club afloat and that doesnt include any improvements - this will allow that and build junior sport in the local area....

To vote, you will need to make a purchase within store of any value. You will receive one token per transaction and it's not necessary to purchase a carrier bag in order to receive a token. Then desposit your token in the corresponding box.

Voting will take place from Wednesday 1st March to Saturday 29th April
