Wild Ground is calling for support from the community to help them win funding through the Tesco Bags of Help scheme.

The scheme makes grants of £4,000, £2,000 and £1,000 to local community projects with the funds raised from carrier bag sales in Tesco stores. Shoppers are being invited to head along to Tesco stores to vote for who they think should take away the top grant.

Wild Ground is one of the groups on the shortlist and is relying on votes to win up to £4000 for activities on Trefnant Nature Reserve.

With the grant, Wild Ground would like to enable primary school children in Trefnant to have better access to nature and wildlife, and to use Trefnant Nature Reserve for environmental education activities such as pond dipping, making nest boxes and creating wildlife-themed art. The grant will pay for clearance work at the site to make it more accessible and for essential tools, activity equipment and storage.

Voting is open in Tesco Prestatyn through January and February, and customers can cast their vote using a token given to them at the check-out in store each time they shop.

To support Wild Ground and make a difference for local children and wildlife, visit Tesco’s Prestatyn store and cast your votes before the end of February!
