Tesco uses some of the money raised by the sale of plastic bags to fund local environmental projects. Becky Smith, from the Design Team, submitted a bid to convert an unused quad area in DT into a growing space for fruit and vegetables so that students can see how food is grown and taste what they plant.
The good news is that the Minsthorpe bid has reached the final three and will be voted on by visitors to the Hemsworth Tesco store in January and February 2018. Just by making the final three, Minsthorpe will win £1,000 towards funding the project but, if we win, it will be £4,000! If you normally shop in this Tesco store, please vote for Minsthorpe in the New Year as your sons and daughters will benefit from this project.
