Tesco Bags of Help Grant Scheme

Armthorpe Academy  has been successful in applying  to the Tesco Bags of Help Grant Scheme and our project will be put forward to a customer vote in Tesco stores during November and December 2018.

Our project along with the other two successful projects in our region will go forward to a vote in Tesco stores where their customers will decide the outcome by voting for their favourite project each time they shop. Voting will take place from Thursday 1st November to Monday 31st December 2018 and we will notify you at the end of January 2019 confirming the amount of funding you will receive.

The project with the highest number of votes across our region will receive £4,000 (or the amount that was requested up to this value), the second placed project £2,000 (or the amount that was requested up to this value), and the third placed project £1,000.

The Academy’s project is “Combating Loneliness & Improving Literacy”. The plan, should we secure first place, will be to purchase i-pads, and build community relationships through inviting elderly residents into school. They will be able to help the students with their reading and literacy and the students in turn can help them to use modern technology.

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.

Place your token in the box for Armthorpe Academy. Thank you for your support.
