Citizens Advice Hart will receive £1,450 that it will use to help more people in the Hart community get the advice and support they urgently need during the cost-of-living crisis.
We are immensely grateful to all of the local people who voted for us in Tesco stores from January to March 2023, and are very pleased to announce that we came in first place!
Our Chief Officer, Samantha Mabbott, says: “We are delighted to receive a grant from Tesco Groundworks. This will enable us to train more volunteers to provide advice and support to improve lives of our Hart residents who are struggling due to the cost-of-living crisis. We are keen to support residents who may not be able to get to our office by offering advice sessions in the heart of the community through our Outreach service. Thank you to everyone who voted for our charity and for supporting us to continue our vital free advice service.”
Claire de Silva, Tesco’s Head of Community, says: “Tesco Community Grants help support local good causes like Citizens Advice Hart and especially those projects supporting young people, those providing food, and local causes close to our colleagues’ hearts.”
Tesco Community Grants is run in partnership with community charity Groundwork, which awards grants to thousands of local community projects every year.
Tesco’s Community Grants scheme – previously Tesco Bags of Help – has already provided over £100 million to more than 50,000 projects across Britain.
Groundwork’s National Chief Executive, Graham Duxbury, said: “Tesco Community Grants continues to give local projects the boost they need to help their communities thrive. We are pleased to have been able to help so many local good causes over the years and look forward to seeing what community organisations can achieve in the future with the right resources.”
Funding is available to community groups and charities looking to fund local projects that bring benefits to communities. To find out more visit www.tesco.com/communitygrants.
