Weston Town Council will receive £500.00 that will go towards the £400,000 all-inclusive SEND Play area currently being built in Castle Batch in Worle.

Sarah Pearse Deputy Town Clerk and project lead said: “We were delighted to work with Tesco as this gave the community an opportunity to put towards this important play area. We are grateful to all of our sponsors”

Claire de Silva, Tesco’s Head of Community, said: “Tesco Community Grants help support local good causes like the all-inclusive play area and especially those projects supporting young people, those providing food, and local causes close to our colleagues’ hearts.”

Tesco Community Grants is run in partnership with community charity Groundwork, who has awarded grants to thousands of local community projects every year.

Tesco’s Community Grants scheme – previously Tesco Bags of Help – has already provided over £100 million to more than 50,000 projects across Britain. 

Groundwork’s National Chief Executive, Graham Duxbury, said: “Tesco Community Grants continues to give local projects the boost they need to help their communities thrive. We are pleased to have been able to help so many local good causes over the years and look forward to seeing what community organisations can achieve in the future with the right resources.”
