Bags of Help

*Results of the Bags of Help store vote will be released by the end of September*

Harpenden Town Council is bidding to bag a cash boost from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative.

Harpenden Town Council has been shortlisted to receive a cash award from the community scheme which sees grants of £4,000, £2,000 and £1,000 being awarded to local community projects. We need shoppers to head along to Tesco stores to vote for who they think should take away the top grant.

Following the success of this year’s Harpenden Goes Wild Carnival, the Town Council is seeking to build on the inspiring wildlife activities showcased at that event with a year of Harpenden Goes Wild.  The project aims to engage, inspire and encourage the young people of Harpenden to learn in and love the outdoors.  We want to increase the number and range of activities that we can offer to young people across all of our open spaces to include pond dipping, wild woods days, bat and insect surveys, crafting and den building to name a few.

Cllr Rosemary Farmer, Mayor of Harpenden Town Council, said: “We are delighted to have been shortlisted for the voting which opens in July and August. We need everyone’s support to make sure we get funds to help young people to engage with the fantastic wildlife that’s on our doorstep in Harpenden.”

Voting is open in local Tesco stores throughout July and August. Customers will cast their vote using a token given to them at the check-out in store each time they shop. Tesco’s Bags of Help project has already delivered over £30 million to more than 4,600 projects up and down the UK.

You can vote in one of the following stores:

  • Harpenden Express, Batford
  • Harpenden Luton Road Express
  • Jersey Farm St Albans
  • London Colney Express
  • St Alban Beech Rd Express
  • St Alban Hatfield Road
  • St Albans Market Metro      
  • Wheathampstead Express

Funding is available to community groups and charities looking to fund local projects that bring benefits to communities. Anyone can nominate a project and organisations can apply online. To find out more visit
