We've got some exciting news to share with you all!
You may be aware that we've been trying to raise money to purchase an AED (defibrillator) which we'll have access to in case of an emergency.
What you might not be aware of is Tesco's "Bags of Help" scheme. The scheme uses money from the 5p carrier bag charges collected in their stores and donates it to local causes. They choose 3 causes that shoppers can vote on after any purchase.
We are thrilled to announce that our AED appeal has been selected to be one of the 3 causes that shoppers can vote on in the Widnes Tesco store during May and June. This will mean we should receive a minimum £1000 and we'll be finally able to purchase one!
Amazing news, I'm sure you'll agree!
We'll keep you updated with how we get on.
