We need bags of your help please!


We have been shortlisted for a public vote in Tesco's Bags of Help initiative!  Tesco teamed up with Groundwork, a UK charity, to launch its community - funding scheme which sees grants of £4,000, £2,000 and £1,000 – all raised from the 5p bag levy – awarded to local community projects.


Throughout May and June,  we are asking you to please use your Bags of Help votes to support our Sixth Form and Duke of Edinburgh students who will be raising funds to create a Community Garden – where these students will work with and support children with  additional physical and  emotional needs to create an accessible self-sustaining  sensory garden within the grounds of Richmond School.



You can cast your vote in the Tesco store at Catterick Garrison, DL9 3EN, from May, by asking for your blue counter each time you shop. Receiving the grant would be fantastic in helping to provide more opportunities for the children that we support to try something new,  develop skills, and participate as valued members of their communities.


  Thank you Tesco and Groundworks for approving our application.
