Round two is open 18 April 2016 until noon on 3 June 2016 APPLY HERE

Last month we announced to members round one of the Tesco community grants scheme Bags of Help and are delighted to hear that at least two of our members have been awarded significant sums for their community projects.

just wanted to thank you for the work you do in updating all of us with useful information. In response to one of your recent email 'round-robins' we applied for a grant to the 'Tesco Bags of Help' campaign and have been awarded £10,000 to improve our outside area for the Mother's and Toddler group and to make ease of access for the disabled and those with mobility issues.

So thank you, keep up the amazing work you do on our behalf”
