We Need Your Votes

St Martin’s R.C. Primary calls out to all our parents and carers for votes to bag a share of bag charge fund

St Martin’s RC Primary Nursery is bidding to bag a cash boost from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative.

Tesco teamed up with Groundwork to launch its community funding scheme, which sees grants of £4,000, £2,000 and £1,000 – all raised from the 5p bag levy – being awarded to local community projects. Greenspace Scotland is working with Groundwork to provide support to communities in Scotland.

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.

St Martin’s RC Primary Nursery is one of the groups on the shortlist.

We are looking for funding for ‘Balance Bikes for Nursery Children with Learning Needs’. These will also be used with children in P1 and P2 classes.

Voting is open in the Musselburgh Extra Tesco store throughout July and August. Customers will cast their vote using a token given to them at the check-out in store each time they shop. Shoppers do not need to purchase a bag to be eligible for a token.

Parents and carers please make an extra effort to shop at Musselburgh Tesco throughout July and August 2017, insist on a token each time you shop, out your token in the in-store voting box to vote for our school cause and help support our bid for funding!
