Providence Street Placeshaping Community Centre receives Bags of Help from Tesco fund

04/10/17

Providence Street Placeshaping Community Centre have received £1000 from the Tesco Bags of Help community grant scheme.

The money will go towards the construction of disabled access for the Community Garden that is located outside the main entrance of the centre.

With the support of the environmental charity Groundwork, Tesco have been using money raised from the sale of plastic bags to provide money to community projects through their Bags of Help grants.

The structural work on the garden was carried out by Freebridge Community Housing Property Services and was completed in June 2017.

The Norfolk Youth Offending Team contributed benches for the garden from their workshop nearby and fencing was provided by West Norfolk MIND.

Generous donations from Lovell, Arc Fabrications, ElecSure, KJ Plastering Ltd, Westcoast Windows, Osborn & Kent and Proctor Roofing and Ground Control helped fund the original project.

Robert Clarke, Director of Housing at Freebridge, said: “We are extremely grateful for the funding that Tesco have pledged to this project.

“Our new community garden has already proved popular with the local community and service users at Providence Street Placeshaping Community Centre, we couldn’t be more delighted that we can now make this fantastic new facility accessible to everyone who visits the centre.”
