WHISTON INITIATIVE IN CULTURAL HERITAGE
Calls out for your votes to bag a share of the bag fund
W.I.C.H is bidding to bag a massive cash boost from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative.
Tesco teamed up with Groundwork to launch
its community funding scheme, which sees grants of £4,000, £2,000 and £1,000 – raised from carrier bag sales in Tesco stores - being awarded to local community projects.
Three groups in every Tesco region have been shortlisted to receive the cash award and shoppers are being invited to head along to Tesco stores to vote for who they think should take away the top grant of the £4,000.

Customers will cast their vote using a token given to them at the check-out in store each time they shop, pleasetake up your offer of tokens and use them wisely by voting for us.
You may not be aware but, we are a Voluntary Community Charity Group & have been together for over 12 years. Our aim is to provide a Memorial Building with much needed toilets in Foxes Bank Cemetery.
The Memorial Building will provide a space for peace & solitude; which has been paid for mostly by the community in remembrance of their loved ones, whose names can be enshrined in the building on a floor tile or on a remembrance
The building will still retain its original shape which will be a remembrance of the Chapel that once stood in the grounds of the old Whiston Hospital, and thus become part
of Whiston’s Heritage with its stained glass windows & distinctive shape.
We would like to thank every one of you, who have helped us in all our fund raising schemes, &
who have made donations via My Donate & bucket collections, and all those who have held sponsored events on our behalf.
Without your generosity this would never have been achievable,
but is now well on its way to being a dream completed.
Tesco’s Bags of Help project has already delivered over £33 million to more than 6,400 projects up and down the
UK, and we could be one of them with your help.
“PLEASE use your vote wisely & VOTE FOR US”
Thank you from the entire W.I.C.H group
