A cheque for £4,000 from the “Bags for Help” scheme operated by the Tesco store in Beverley, has been presented to local representatives of the British Red Cross to help with their Independent Living and Crisis Response service.

A British Red Cross spokesperson said: “We’d like to thank our partners Tesco, and their customers in Beverley, for this donation – which will be used as part of the Red Cross’ work helping those in crisis. Tesco has been working in partnership with the Red Cross for over a decade, and its Bags for Help scheme is just one of the many ways in which it helps organisations like the Red Cross and communities across the country.”

Tesco’s Bags of Help project has already donated £56 million and supported 16,000 community projects across the UK since the start of the scheme in 2016. The scheme is permanently open for applications from schools, sports clubs, charities and community groups. Please contact Dave Ryley (beverley@communityattesco.co.uk) or visit the Bags of Help website www.tesco.com/bagsofhelp/ for more information on entry criteria.
