We did it!

Great Yarmouth Mercury, May 2016
A big thank you to everyone who voted for us to receive funding from the Bags of Help scheme run by Tesco and Groundwork! We will be receiving our £10,000 soon and the project will be starting. So far, we have a hardcore ground laid for the labyrinth site in preparation, and will then begin building the path, growing plants and mosaic sculpture workshops. 

If you'd like to know when we'll be kicking off the project, keep an eye on our facebook page here.

Bags of Help funding initiative

Tesco has teamed up with Groundwork to launch its Bags of Help initiative across England and Wales. The scheme will see three community groups and projects awarded grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 – all raised from the 5p bag charge. Bags of Help offers community groups and projects in each of Tesco’s 390 regions across the UK a share of revenue generated from the five pence charge levied on single-use carrier bags.

The public will now vote in store at a local Tesco from 27 February until 6 March 2016 on who should receive the £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 awards.

We'd love your support to build The Recovery Labyrinth Project, so please vote for us to receive a generous £ award!

The more more we receive, the more workshops we are able to deliver and the more members of our local community can get involved.

Remember to tell everyone on social media that you've supported us and include the hashtag #BagsofHelp.

Thank you!
