Wildside in Scotland has applied to the Tesco Bags of Help Scheme to develop the Kilsyth Woodland Centre’s community activities in partnership with Kilsyth Primary School and we have been successful in being put forward to a customer vote in Tesco stores during December.
Now the hard work starts as we need your VOTE. Our project is called Kilsyth Primary School - Kilsyth Primary Community Woodland - Branching Out
The project will provide free woodland adventure play sessions in summer 2017 and will establish a community growing polytunnel social enterprise growing young trees and healthy salad leaves. We believe play and greenspaces should be places where local people can meet, experiment and share ideas and activities.
You can VOTE NOW for our project in any of these stores and for every purchase made:
BISHOPBRIGGS KIRKATL EXP
BRIDGE OF AL H ST EXP
GLASGOW RCK PLACE EXP
……..and please keep voting each time you are in Tesco until 31 December 2016 – and we may win £5,000 to make these dreams come true!!!!
Kilsyth Primary School - Kilsyth Primary Community Woodland - Branching Out
This project will provide supervised woodland natural play adventure sessions during the summer holidays and community growing polytunnel to produce affordable healthy eating by local people for local people. We would like to deliver ten sessions with an outdoor play specialist who will train and support volunteer helpers/parents as play workers and manage child protection, risk assessment and project management, insurance etc. These will take place over the summer holiday 2017. The project will also fund a new community volunteer from May to July 2017 to support the development of volunteer’s skills, community organisation and establish the salad leaf production enterprise. To vote, you will need to make a purchase within store of any value. You will receive one token per transaction and it's not necessary to purchase a carrier bag in order to receive a token.
