VETERANS can go on outings and attend medical appointments thanks to shoppers.
The Royal Star and Garter Homes in Solihull received £4,000 from the sales of 5p single-use carrier bags after receiving the most votes in borough stores in March and April.
The money from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative will go towards a new minibus, which will help residents go on outings and attend medical appointments.
The Monkspath Hall Road care home is for ex-servicemen and women and their partners living with disability or dementia.
Caley Eldred, director of supporter engagement at the charity, said: “The minibus plays an important role in the quality of care we provide, but the current one is nearing the end of its useful life, so we’re fundraising for a new one.
“To be awarded the top grant available will mean the world to our residents, and we are grateful to Tesco and to everyone who voted.”
