Age Cymru Sir Gâr in Carmarthenshire have applied to the Tesco Bags of Help scheme and needs your support to help win up to £4,000 to help us support older people with new technology.
Ann Dymock, chief officer of Age Cymru Sir Gâr, explained –
“Tesco donates all the 5ps that they charge for carrier bags to a charitable cause. Age Cymru Sir Gâr are in the final 3 for July 2017 and details about the charity and the work it wants to achieve with funding help from Tesco will be displayed in its Carmarthenshire stores throughout July.
“To help us win the £4,000 for the charity to help older people learn how to engage with new technology please vote for us. All you need to do is to make a purchase of any value from a Tesco store. You will receive one token per transaction (you may need to ask for the token) and it’s not necessary to purchase a carrier bag in order to receive a token. At the front of the store there will be three bins where you can place your blue token. Just pop the token into the one that says Age Cymru Sir Gâr and that gains us one vote.
“If your local Tesco does not have an Age Cymru Sir Gâr box and you’ve got tokens that you would like to use, please drop them into the office or ring and let us know and a member of staff can take them to our local Tesco and put them in the Age Cymru Sir Gâr box for you.
“We need your votes. Please ask friends and neighbours to support us, too.”
