Newcastle Vikings Handball Club is delighted to announce it has bagged £1,000 from Tesco’s Bags of Help community grant scheme.
Bags of Help is run in partnership with community focused environmental charity Groundwork, who have awarded grants to thousands of local community projects every year. Since launching in 2015, Bags of Help has provided more than £70 million to almost 30,000 local community projects across England.
Tesco colleagues have come together virtually up and down the country to vote and it can now be revealed that Newcastle Vikings has been awarded £1,000.
Work will now begin on bringing the project to life. The project will be focused on helping children and families in our communities to get more active, increase quality of life and improve mental wellbeing by running fun, action packed sessions playing handball.
From the club, we are really grateful and excited to start this initiative.
