Our project has been shortlisted for a public vote in Tesco’s #BagsofHelp initiative! Vote for us to win the top prize in store! Between 31st October and 13th November 2016 you will be able to cast your vote for the restoration of Gwrych Castle Gardens at Tesco Stores in Abergele, Prestatyn and Llandudno Junction. When you shop you will be given a token and with that you will have the opportunity to vote for the Gwrych Castle Garden Restoration! This grant will enable Gwrych Castle Preservation Trust to restore the historic formal gardens back to its former glory. The aim of the Trust is to ensure that the public has access to this great heritage asset. The re-creation of this designed landscape as a community garden provides a new chapter in the castle’s history.
Tesco has teamed up with Groundwork on 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 416 regions across the UK a share of revenue generated from the 5p charge levied on single-use carrier bags. The public will now vote in store from 31st October to 13th November on who should receive the £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 awards. In total, there is over £12.5 million up for grabs.
Please support this project by voting for Gwrych!
