200_bags%20of%20help%20pic[1]Spelthorne Council took part in Tesco’s Bags of Help initiative at the end of March and raised funds for improvements to the Commercial Road Allotments in Staines-upon-Thames.

The scheme allows Tesco customers to use tokens given to them at the till to vote for their favourite local project and decide how grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 – all raised from the 5p bag charge – will be allocated.

Tesco Extra stores in Ashford and Sunbury took part in the scheme and after a week of voting it was announced that Spelthorne Council received £8000 for the allotment project.

Two other local projects run by Town Farm Primary and Riverbridge Primary School received £12,000 and £10,000 respectively.
