A Clevedon community group is hoping to win a share of some much-needed funding.
Clevedon YMCA is bidding for a cash boost from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative.
It has made the final shortlist, alongside two other projects to receive the award and therefore shoppers are encouraged to vote for who they think should take away the top grant worth £4,000.
The Clevedon youth organisation works with vulnerable people between the ages of 11-19, including those with disabilities, offering skills sessions and workshops as they transition towards a working environment.
Group volunteer Mike Allison said: “Our aim is to enable vulnerable young people to develop to their full potential.
“We employ youth workers and volunteers who have built up considerable experience of running youth clubs, and other activities for young people.”
Voting is open in all Tesco stores throughout May and June.
