TESCO BAGS OF HELP
The Risca Museum has been accepted for the next period of the Tesco Bags of Help scheme. Tesco operate this scheme to redistribute money from the charge for plastic carrier bags to local charities. During September & October we will be one of three organisations covered by the Risca & Rogerstone Tesco stores.
The system is that every time you go through the checkout you are given a token (you may have to ask) and there is a perspex container divided into three sections. You post your token in your chosen section. At the end of the period the organisations are ranked 1st, 2nd & 3rd on the basis of the number of tokens and receive £4000, £2000 & £1000 respectively.
We welcome all the support we can get so please do what you can and spread the word to friends & family.
