The Comet, 15th July 2019
As Tesco’s marks its centenary with its special Bags of Health Funding Grants, Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) has been put forward as one of the nominees to receive £100,000 at the Tesco in Stevenage. Customers at the store will be given a blue token with each carrier bag purchased which they can use to vote for the charity or project which they think deserves the grant money.
“In 2019, we are celebrating a century of delivering great value for our customers,” said Alec Brown, Tesco’s Head of Community. “What better way to celebrate this occasion than by using our flagship community grant scheme, Bags of Help, to support even more groups and organisations who are helping to make a difference across Britain. We encourage our shoppers to register their votes while in store and help support projects delivering health and wellbeing benefits in their local area.”
