Our sensory garden in Pontypridd is aimed primarily at adults and children with sight and hearing loss, but is also accessible to anyone in the locality interested in knowing more about sight and hearing loss or just looking for a quiet place to sit, think and enjoy the garden.

The money will be helping us to complete the project and ensure the garden is accessible for and usable by as many people as possible.

Voting runs in each of the stores above from 31st October until 13th November.

About the Tesco Bags of Help scheme…

Tesco has teamed up with Groundwork on its Bags of Help initiative in hundreds of regions across England and Wales. The scheme will see three community groups and projects in each of these regions awarded grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 – all raised from the 5p bag charge.

Bags of Help offers community groups and projects in each of Tesco’s 416 regions across the UK a share of revenue generated from the 5p charge levied on single-use carrier bags. The public will now vote in store from 26 September to 9 October on who should receive the £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 awards. In total, there is over £12.5 million up for grabs.
