School needs bags of help to secure funds
Tesco token appeal
Green-fingered pupils at Calderwood Primary need your votes to help them bag a share of Tesco cash to help their school garden grow and every little helps.
As part of the Tesco Bags of Help initiative, local shoppers will be able to show their support for the youngsters in their bid to make their community outdoor classroom blooming marvellous by voting for their project in-store.
And they could help them bag a grant of £4,000, £2,000 or £1,000
Three groups in every Tesco region are shortlisted to receive cash and Calderwood Primary is one of them to be picked for the latest round of funding.
Now local shoppers at the Tescos in Rutherglen and Burnside, as well as stores in Shettleston, Bailleston and Parkhead, are being invited to vote for their favourite project.
All shoppers need to do is make a purchase and they will receive a token.
As they leave the store, there is a voting zone at the exit where they can pop their token in the box of their chosen project.
Calderwood Primary would put any money received towards the outdoor performance area in their garden, in particular to buy giant outdoor instruments including a turtle drum, rainbow sambas and Akakinda, as well as more willow structures and benches.
Jayne Swanson, chairperson of the parent council, urged shoppers to get behind the project and said: “These are local children working so very hard on a fantastic project to make their school a greener and brighter place to learn.
“They would really appreciate your help and I hope that every time you pop into Tesco, you pop a little token in the Calderwood Primary box.”
The voting is up and running in store now and will end on Friday, June 30.
