Tesco Bags of Help Community Project Funds

Our project is to improve and extend the play area at Dove Cottage Tea Room

The existing play area at our Dove Cottage Tearoom is in good condition, a popular destination for the local community and raises considerable funds for the hospice. In 2009 we were fortunate to receive some funding from the local council through their Playbuilder Scheme to install some adventure playground equipment. This funding was specific to equipment for children over the age of 8. We would like to install some additional play equipment for children under the age of 8 and replace some worn safety matting on the existing equipment.

Tesco has teamed up with Groundwork on its Bags of Help initiative in hundreds of regions across England and Wales. The scheme will see three community groups and projects in each of these regions awarded grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 – all raised from the 5p bag charge.
