Will We Win £12,000 for Deri Woods – it’s up to you!

Tesco has teamed up with Groundwork to launch its Bags of Help initiative in hundreds of regions across England and Wales. The scheme will see three community groups and projects in each of these regions 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 from 27 February until 6 March on who should receive the £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 awards.

Deri Woods is an important place for wildlife. It is a semi-natural ancient woodland that dates back to the 14th Century, there are otters, native crayfish and brown trout in the river. The woods also have a rich cultural heritage, with the Gorsedd Stone Circle and links to the Mabinogion.

We are therefore very excited to announce that the Llanfair Town Council and Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust could get £12,000 from Tesco Bags of Help initiative (see box) to support a Community woodland project (called Nurtured by Nature)

The Project aims to:
• Increase the wildlife value of this ancient semi-natural woodland.
• Create a focal point, inspiring the community to take action.
• Develop a visitor friendly community space to draw in and maximize stay duration (and therefore spend) from local tourism.
• Give volunteers opportunities to increase their skills, confidence, health and wellbeing.
• Add value to the local identity, natural and cultural resources.

To Make this Happen we need your vote!

If you want to support this project, make sure you vote in the Newtown or Welshpool Tesco stores for the 'NURTURED by NATURE' Project. You have until the 6th of March. Make your vote count!
