SOLIHULL shoppers are being called on to help bag some extra funding for children’s charity the NSPCC.
Tesco stores in Solihull will be participating in the supermarket’s Bags of Help grant scheme, in conjunction with Groundwork, which sees grants of £1,500, £1,000 and £500 awarded to community projects.
Voting is open in all Tesco stores in January, February and March and customers will cast their vote using a token given to them at the check-out each time they shop.
Shoppers can take part in stores across Dorridge, Knowle, Solihull town centre, Shirley and Dickens Heath.
Maureen Mason NSPCC community fundraising manager for the West Midlands said: “We are enormously grateful to Tesco and Groundwork for choosing the NSPCC for the Bags of Help grant scheme.
“The NSPCC relies on public donations for 90 per cent of its income and so the money raised in the Solihull stores will make a big difference to children and young people who rely on services such Childline as a confidential source of support when they need it.”
