A while ago we wrote about Providence Street Placeshaping Community Centre’s new garden. They have now received £1000 from the Tesco Bags of Help community grant scheme, which will go towards the construction of disabled access for the Community Garden that is located outside the main entrance of the centre.
With the support of the environmental charity Groundwork, Tesco have been using money raised from the sale of plastic bags to provide money to community projects through their Bags of Help grants.
Robert Clarke, Director of Housing at Freebridge, said: “We are extremely grateful for the funding that Tesco have pledged to this project.
“Our new community garden has already proved popular with the local community and service users at Providence Street Placeshaping Community Centre, we couldn’t be more delighted that we can now make this fantastic new facility accessible to everyone who visits the centre.”
