A children’s hospice is bidding to bag a cash boost from the Tesco Bags Of Help initiative.
People visiting the Nailsea and Portishead stores will be asked to vote on which charity should receive a grant of £4,000, £2,000 or £1,000 raised from carrier bag sales.
Jessie May Trust, whose nurses provide vital respite care to local terminally ill children and their families in their own homes, is one of the groups on the shortlist and is now encouraging supporters to vote for their charity at one of the two supermarkets.
Voting is open in all Tesco stores from September 1 to October 31.
Jessie May community fundraiser Helen Mackie said: “We are thrilled to have been shortlisted for this amazing opportunity. Winning any of these grants would be an amazing boost for our charity, which relies heavily on funding like this to provide our services at no cost to families locally.”
