Back in January, we reported that the Friends of Windmill Gardens (FoWG) had been shortlisted to receive a cash boost in the Tesco Bags of Help scheme. The scheme relied on Tesco shoppers voting for who they thought should receive the top grant of £2,000 – the runners up would receive £1,000 and £500.
Voting was supposed to run until the end of March. But because of the Covid-19 outbreak, Tesco stopped the voting early and will distribute the money equally among all three shortlisted groups. So FoWG will receive £1,116.
Many thanks to everyone who voted and showed their support for FoWG!
