Tesco Bags of Help
We were shortlisted for the Tesco “Bags of Help” Grant which is managed by Groundwork and funded by Tesco customers who have paid the 5p charge for plastic carrier bags resulting from the government carrier bag levy. The public then voted on which project to support in our local Tesco stores and we are delighted to be awarded the first place grant of £12,000. Our project is based on the restoration of the lower River Keer near Carnforth to benefit the community. It will include restoration of the footpath, removal of rubbish from the river and control of Himalayan Balsam.
