Bags of Help for North London Hospice
CategoryCommunity|Fundraising|North London Hospice
North London Hospice has been shortlisted for the in-store vote in Tesco’s Bags of Help initiative – and we need your help to win!
Bags of Help is Tesco’s community grant scheme where the money raised from the 5p bag charge is used to benefit local charities and projects.
Shoppers are asked to vote for the cause they care about most, and if enough people drop their blue tokens in our box after completing their shopping, we could receive up to £4,000 of funding towards our kitchen refurbishment project.
Thanks to the generosity of some wonderful community trusts and our supporters we have so far raised £85,000 towards the renovation. The Bags of Help scheme will enable the refurbishment project to edge a little closer.
The kitchen serves all meals to patients and families staying on the 18-bed ward, as well as those visiting for day services such as the Come and Connect Group. However, it has not been updated since the building was opened almost 26 years ago and is in desperate need of replacement.
Voting is open during September and October 2018 at:

If you shop at any of the above stores (or can make a detour to do so!), simply ask for a blue token at the checkout and drop it in our box on your way out.
As Tesco say themselves, ‘every little helps’ and your vote can help make a big difference to the patients we care for.
Please help us spread the word – and get voting!
