Friends of Windmill Gardens are bidding to bag a cash boost from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative. Tesco works with Groundwork to run its community funding scheme, which sees grants of £2,000, £1,000 and £500 awarded to local community projects.

Three groups in every Tesco region have been shortlisted to receive the cash award, and shoppers are being invited to head along to Tesco stores to vote for who they think should take away the top grant. Friends of Windmill Gardens are one of the groups on the shortlist.

To vote, you need to make a purchase of any value within a participating Tesco store throughout January, February and March. You will receive one token per transaction and it's not necessary to purchase a carrier bag in order to receive a token. You can vote every time you buy something.

If the Friends win, the money will go towards furnishing and equipping the brand new Brixton Windmill Centre.

Jean Kerrigan, Chair of the Friends of Windmill Gardens, said:

“Opening in spring this year, Brixton Windmill Centre will be a social and educational community hub for residents and visitors alike, and your vote will help us provide even better activities and events for our local community at London's oldest working windmill.”
