Vote for carers in Eastbourne and Hailsham areas
26 October 2018
A quick and easy way you can help unpaid carers in Eastbourne, Polegate and Pevensey, and Hailsham: vote in the supermarket
Next time you’re shopping in Tesco stores in those areas of East Sussex, please take a moment to drop a vote in the tub for Care for the Carers.
Throughout November and December, you can help us to help carers via Tesco’s Bags of Help local community grant scheme. Money raised via the sale of carrier bags is being used to fund thousands of local projects in communities right across the UK. We are hoping to be able to fund further support groups and activities for carers in Eastbourne, Polegate, Pevensey and Hailsham.
If we secure the most votes across the Tesco stores in those areas, then we could benefit from up to£4,000 in funding for projects in each of these areas. We’ve already been , so please, please do your bit to help carers in other regions, too.
Voting is open in stores in November and December – please vote for us!
