Camfest is in the customer vote for a Bags of Help grant from Tesco. It’s a scheme which gives community projects like this grants of up to £4,000 - all raised from the sale of carrier bags in Tesco stores. The public will vote in our local Tesco stores, including Sandhurst, from now to the end of June on who should receive the awards. Please support CamFest in your local Tesco by putting your tokens, which you get from the till, in the Tesco bin.
