THREE MORE good causes have benefitted from donations totalling £3,000 from the Tesco Beverley Grants Scheme. Beverley Manor Nursery School received £1,500 for the Beverley Food Pantry, the East Yorkshire Hygiene Bank received £1,000 to help provide hygiene products for those who cannot afford them and Woodmansey Primary School received £500 for their mental health and wellbeing resources project for their pupils.

Hygiene Bank founder and co-ordinator Jackie Heffer told Beverley FM: “The hygiene bank works in partnership with our local food bank and the community pantry in the East Riding. Many families have had to go without toiletries in order to buy food and this can have a detrimental effect on their mental health and well being.”

She continued: “With the current cost of living crisis, our support is more important than ever as it is a very stressful time for so many people. We are also supported by collections held in Boots and Boyes, in addition to our own fundraisers.” 

Tesco’s Community Grants Scheme is currently open for applications from food banks, schools, holiday clubs, sports clubs, charities and community groups.
