Handy Helpers in Aylesbury Tesco Bags of Help scheme

2 October 2017

Shopping at a Tesco in Aylesbury this month? Drop your token in our box and help fund our Handy Helpers project.

Handy Helpers is a new pilot project to help vulnerable and isolated Aylesbury Vale residents who are living with a disability or 60+ and infirm. The project helps people with small repairs and maintenance tasks around their homes which they can’t do for themselves.  It provides a free trustworthy service which offers visits and help from DBS checked volunteers.

Samantha Hardy, project manager, said, “This project is unique in that it combines two things which our more vulnerable residents really need; help with odd jobs around their homes and a visit from a friendly face who can give that much-needed social interaction.  Handy Helpers is all about local community participation and volunteering and we’d love to hear from anyone who is able to give some of their time to the project.”

You can help support the project by voting in the Tesco Bags of Help scheme in Aylesbury stores.  The funding scheme awards grants of £4,000, £2,000 and £1,000 raised from carrier bag sales in Tesco stores to local community projects.

Voting is open in all Tesco stores throughout September and October. Customers will cast their vote using a token given to them at the check-out in store each time they shop.  And you don’t need to buy a carrier bag to receive a token!
