We’re in the customer vote for a Bags of Help grant from Tesco. It’s a scheme which gives community projects like us grants of up to £4,000 – all raised from the sale of carrier bags in Tesco stores. The public will now vote in store during November and December on who should receive the awards. Please support us in the Alloa store! More info at www.tesco.com/bagsofhelp
