We are pleased to announce that we are in the customer vote for a Tesco Community Grant.
It’s a scheme which gives community projects like us grants of up to £1,500.
Tesco customers will now vote in the following stores from 12 July to 30 September 2021:
DURHAM EXTRA - DH1 2XA
DURHAM MARKT PL METRO - DH1 3NH
DURHAM NORTH RD EXP - DH1 4SH
These votes will decide how much funding we get, so please support us next time you shop at Tesco!
Any money awarded will be used to support children with a parent in prison in the north east, through support to visit, our play areas and youth zones and special family visits.
Did you know?
312,000 children are affected by parental imprisonment each year*
Children of prisoners are at risk of significantly worse outcomes than children not affected by parental imprisonment including an increased risk of mental health issues, and of being involved in the criminal justice system themselves in later life.*
