Christian projects in King's Lynn go head to head
In January and February, the King’s Lynn Night Shelter and King’s Lynn Foodbank will be two of the three organisations hoping to gain the most votes in the Tesco Bags of Help community grant scheme.
The Tesco Bags of Help community grant scheme raises money from the sale of carrier bags to fund local projects. Three community projects in each local area are voted on by customers in Tesco stores. Following the vote, the project that received the most votes in its area will receive a grant of up to £4,000, second place receiving up to £2,000 and third place up to £1,000. Customers are given a token when they buy their shopping that they can use to make their choice using the voting units in most stores.

Andrew Frere-Smith development worker with Imagine Norfolk Together helps both organisations with fundraising. He says “What’s the chance of both organisations being selected for the scheme on the same month? However, I prefer to see it as a win-win rather than a battle! Both organisations are going to get much needed funds. It will be interesting to see which one the public responds to most.”
