After a wait of several months Harbury e-Wheels, a charitable off-shoot of HEI working with All Saints Church Harbury, has been shortlisted for the public vote in store in Southam Tesco. Tesco teamed up with Groundwork to launch its community funding scheme, which sees grants of up to £4,000, £2,000 and £1,000 – all raised from carrier bag sales in Tesco stores – being awarded to local community projects.
Bags of Help http://www.tesco.com/bagsofhelp offers community groups and projects across the UK a share of revenue generated from carrier bag sales in Tesco store. The public will now vote in store during September and October on who should receive the awards. Harbury e-Wheels volunteers very much hope to scoop the top prize of up to £4000 to enable them to continue to support those in need and the less well off in communities within 15 miles of the village. We need local shoppers to support us with the blue tokens available at the checkout.
Since November 2015 we have delivered over 1,500 hours of free transport using our village electric cars, provided by E-Car Club for their Harbury hub. Demand is rising and we have trebled our delivery during 2017. For more information on e-Wheels see our page on this website.
If you live within shopping distance of Southam Tesco, please vote for Harbury e-Wheels.
