We’re thrilled to have been shortlisted for a Tesco Community Grant and are asking Tesco shoppers to please vote for us!
Carer Support Wiltshire have been selected to receive funding from the Tesco Community Grants Initiative. The money we are awarded will be used to run cooking workshops for unpaid carers in Calne and Marlborough, giving carers some time to learn new cookery skills and meet other carers too.
Tesco works with community charity Groundwork to award grants of up to £1,500, £1,000 and £500 to local community groups. Three groups have been shortlisted to receive the cash award and shoppers are invited to head to Tesco stores to vote for who they think should take away the top grant.
Voting is open in January, February and March at the following stores:
- Calne, Beversbrook Road Tesco Superstore
- Calne Tesco Express
- Marlborough Tesco Superstore
- Devizes Tesco Express.
Customers can cast their vote using a token given to them at the check-out each time they shop. There’s no requirement to buy a carrier bag to receive a token.
If you’ll be shopping in any of the Tesco stores listed above, please vote for us and help us to secure as much funding for unpaid carers as possible.
