St Mary’s Beverley Church Lads and Church Girls Brigade have won £1,000.
The money they have won came as a result of them being voted in the March to April Bags of Help scheme.
Customers of the Tesco store in Beverley backed the group who will now use the money for equipment for their multi-use community hub space.
Representatives from Tesco in Beverley went to the HQ on George Street. While there they presented the groups with a cheque. They also took the time to find out more about how the grant will be spent.
Glen Redhead, the CO of the St Mary’s Beverley Church Lads and Church Girls Brigade, said:
“We would like to thank all Tesco’s customers for their support in the Bags For Help vote.”
“We are very grateful to receive £1000 from the scheme. Our project was to create a community hub in our newly refurbished HQ.”
“We intend to spend the money on a modern sound system for our main hall. This will be very useful to us and any members of the community that use our hall.”
