Bags of Help gives Tesco customers the opportunity to vote for their favourite of three greenspace projects local to their store. 

The Friends of Aireville Park project will be one of three projects in the Skipton and Clitheroe Stores from February 27 until March 6.

Customers at both these stores will be given a token, with every transaction, to vote for their preferred community project over the course of a nine-day period.

Online customers can take their Customer Delivery Note into store and show this to a colleague in order to be given a voting token. All three projects will receive a grant, with the customer vote determining how much. The project with the most votes will receive £12,000 followed by £10,000 and then £8,000.

Fiona Protheroe, Chair of friends of Aireville Park, said: "We are delighted to be shortlisted for funding, and hope that people in Skipton and Clitheroe can vote for us, so we receive £12,000 for a new piece of playground equipment in Aireville Park. This is part of our long term plan to work with Craven District Council to improve the children's play area."

Tesco has teamed up with Groundwork to launch its Bags of Help initiative in hundreds of regions across England and Wales. The scheme will see three community groups and projects in each of these regions awarded grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 - all raised from the 5p bag charge.

Bags of Help offers community groups and projects in each of Tesco's 390 regions across the UK a share of revenue generated from the five pence charge levied on single-use carrier bags.
