Throughout May and June, Tesco customers in selected stores will be able to vote for Sheffield Wednesday Community Programme to help fund the Healthy Owls Project.

Tesco’s Bags of Help project has already delivered over £43 million to more than  10,000 projects up and down the UK.

The Healthy Owls Holiday project, along with the two other projects in the Sheffield region, will go forward to a vote in Tesco stores where their customers will decide the outcome by voting for their favourite project each time they shop.

Voting will take place from Tuesday 1st May to Saturday 30th June 2018 and the Sheffield Wednesday Community Programme will be notified of the results at the end of July 2018 confirming the amount of funding we will receive.

Healthy Owls aim to support schools to help their children and young people to grow healthily and become active.

SWFCCP delivers fun and interactive sessions which allow children and young people to understand of the benefits of having a healthy diet and lifestyle.

The programme includes classroom and active learning through Healthy Eating Week, assemblies and breakfast clubs.

Alec Brown, Head of Community at Tesco, said:

“We are absolutely delighted to open the voting for May and June. There are some fantastic projects on the shortlists and we can’t wait to see these come to life in hundreds of communities.”
