Finalist (North West Region) Tesco Centenary Grant
In 2019 ‘My Colourful Memories C.I.C.’ was awarded a place in the Lancashire and Cumbria region Tesco Centenary ‘Bags of Help’ Community Fund. This was a very competitive process, major charities and community groups applied from across the region, the place guaranteed a community grant of £10.000.
The Centenary grant allowed customers to vote for three charities in Tesco stores throughout the whole of Lancashire and Cumbria. Votes were made via the blue tokens, which were given to customers at the checkout. My Colourful Memories C.I.C was promoted in Tesco stores across Lancashire, which help to gain further connections with volunteers and other community groups.
