BWI Bags of Help

Our project (Developing Spaces for Developing Minds) along with the other two successful projects in our region will go forward to a vote in Tesco stores where their customers will decide the outcome by voting for their favourite project each time they shop. The voting consists of putting a token into the box labelled with name of the school and our project title.It is sometimes necessary to ASK for a token as they are not always offered! 

Voting will take place from Thursday 1st March - Monday 30th April 2018 and we will be notified, at the end of May 2018 confirming the amount of funding we will receive. The project with the highest number of votes across our region will receive £4,000, the second placed project £2,000 and the third placed project £1,000.
