Beverley Town Handbell Ringers bags £1000 from
Tesco’s community grant scheme
Andrew (Ford) Secretary of the Beverley Town Handbell Ringers is delighted to announce it has bagged £1000 from Tesco’s Bags of Help community grant scheme.
Bags of Help is run in partnership with community charity Groundwork, and sees grants awarded to thousands of local community projects every year.
Since launching in 2015, Bags of Help has provided more than £68 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 Beverley Town Handbell Ringers has been awarded £1000.
Work will now begin on bringing the project to life.
The purpose of ‘Chimes Ring Out’ is to buy a set of handchimes to take into community groups giving members the opportunity to enjoy the pleasure of music making without any musical training.
Taking part in music making builds confidence and increases social interaction by working as a team whilst having fun learning a new skill.
The handbell band are always looking to welcome new members who would like to be part of a unique group of musicians who undertake concerts and provide music making opportunities for a wide range of audiences.

With voting not currently running in stores, Tesco colleagues have worked together to decide which three local projects in their region should be awarded a grant of £1000.
Claire de Silva, Tesco’s Head of Community, said: “Bags of Help contributes funds to community projects up and down the country and whilst our customers have not been able to vote in this round, we’ve been delighted by the number of colleagues who have come together to choose projects in their local areas. In what has been an extremely tough year, we’re looking forward to seeing these projects providing support for their communities brought to life.”
Groundwork’s National Chief Executive, Graham Duxbury, said: “Tesco community grants continue to enable local communities across England to improve the local spaces and places that matter to them. The diversity of projects that are being funded shows that local communities have a passion to create something great in their area. We are pleased to be able to be a part of the journey and provide support and encouragement to help local communities thrive.”
Funding is available to community groups and charities looking to fund local projects that bring benefits to communities. To find out more visit www.tesco.com/bagsofhelp (opens in a new window).
