KIDS is bidding to bag a massive cash boost from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative.

Tesco teamed up with Groundwork to launch its community funding scheme, which sees grants of £4,000, £2,000 and £1,000 – all raised from the 5p bag levy – being 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.

KIDS is one of the groups on the shortlist.

How your vote will help?

KIDS Lady Allen Playground is a space specifically designed for disabled children and their siblings in Wandsworth. It provides a unique opportunity for local disabled children to play in an inclusive green space, challenge themselves, discover new interests, meet other local children and have fun independently of their parents.

£1000 will fund 2 weeks of the play scheme during the school holidays

£2000 will fund 4 weeks of the play scheme during the school holidays

£4000 will fund 8 weeks of the play scheme during the school holidays
