  3. Theodora Children’s Charity bags from Tesco’s community grant scheme

Your votes have helped us provide Giggle Doctor moments to children at Bradford Royal Infirmary

We are delighted to announce that we bagged £3,452 from Tesco’s Bags of Help community grant scheme. Thank you so much to everyone who voted for us in store.

The money raised will help us to provide 345 Giggle Doctor visits to sick and disabled children at Bradford Royal Infirmary. One Giggle Doctor visits Bradford Royal Infirmary every Tuesday afternoon providing them with magical moments of joy and laughter.

Bags of Help is run in partnership with environmental charity Groundwork, and sees grants raised from the sale of carrier bags awarded to thousands of local community projects every year. Since launching in 2015, it’s provided more than £52 million to over 16,000 local community projects.

Alec Brown, Tesco’s Head of Community, said:

“Bags of Help has been a fantastic success and we’ve been overwhelmed by the response from customers. It’s such a special scheme because it’s local people who decide how the money will be spent in their community. We can’t wait to see the projects come to life.”

Voting ran in stores throughout March and April with customers choosing which local project they would like to get the top award using a token given to them at the checkout.

Thank you so much to everyone who voted on our behalf!
