Tesco Community Funding for Allotment Site

Council News

Cuckfield Parish Council have been shortlisted for Community Funding from Tesco Bags of Help Initiative Scheme with the funding to be used for our Whitemans Green Allotment Site. Click on the link below for more information and how you can vote.

The scheme is running until 30th April 2017.

Tesco has teamed up with Groundwork to launch its Bags of Help Initiative across England and Wales with the scheme choosing three community groups being awarded £5000, £2000 and £1000. Bags of help offer this money from revenue generated from the 5p bag charge on single use carrier bags. 

As a Parish Council we have applied and have been shortlisted for a prize. Our intention is to use the money for the Whitemans Green Allotment Site and the drainage work that is needed there to stop flooding issues. 

We need your help to achieve this by voting in store. 

To vote you will need to make a purchase within the store of any value. You will receive one token per transaction and it is not necessary to purchase a carrier bag in order to receive a token. 

The following stores are taking part in the voting - 

Burgess Hill (Jane Murray Way RH15 9QT) 
Billingshurst Express (RH14 9SX)
Haywards Heath Northlands Avenue (RH16 3TG)
Burgess Hill Express Gatehouse Lane (RH15 9XB)
Haywards Heath Express Orchards Shopping Centre (RH16 3TH) 

Please vote for us to win the top prize in store when you next shop at a Tesco's store during March and April.
