Tesco Bags of Help

11th December 2018

We are thrilled to announce that South Malling School’s outdoor project ‘Space to Learn, Space to Grow’ has been selected for the Tesco Bags of Help public vote during January and February 2019. Run in partnership with environmental charity Groundwork, Bags of Help uses the money raised from carrier bag sales to fund local projects. The project that receives the most votes in its area will receive a grant of up to £4,000, second place receiving up to £2,000 and third place up to £1,000.

The Project

 Our ‘Space to Learn, Space to Grow’ project will transform outdoor learning activities at South Malling School. We will build raised beds for growing fruit, vegetables and flowers, and create a fire pit and den areas on the school field. Our project will encourage mini-beast habitats, birds, bees and butterflies.


How you can help

Please vote for us! Tesco customers vote in-store for a local project, using the blue token given to them at the checkout. You will receive one blue token per transaction (please ask for a token if you are not given one!) Then pop your token in the South Malling voting box.

You can vote for us in any of the following stores: Tesco Superstore Lewes and the Tesco Express stores at Peacehaven, Seaford and Rottingdean.

 Please encourage your friends, family and colleagues to vote for our project when they shop too.


Voting will take place between 1st January and 28th February 2019
