Killin & District Sports & Leisure Club is bidding to bag a massive 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 raised from carrier bag sales in Tesco stores 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.
Killin & District Sports & Leisure Club is one of the groups on the shortlist.
The club is looking at replacing the current AstroTurf surface. This would present a significant improvement to the club’s facilities and allow the overall facility to be better used by the local school, nursery and the wider community.
Ultimately the aim of the club is to provide a facility for the whole community to use for a range of sports. Given our new partnership with Active Stirling we believe that an ongoing programme of events could then be offered to children and young people.
Voting is open in the Callander and Dunblane Tesco stores from 1st September to 31st October 2018. Customers will cast their vote using a token given to them at the check-out in store each time they shop. To vote, you will need to make a purchase within store of any value. You will receive one token per transaction and it’s not necessary to purchase a carrier bag in order to receive a token.
