Get collecting those blue tokens at Tesco for Henshaws

The Tesco Community Grants Programme and nine stores in the North West have very kindly chosen to support Henshaws through their customer token voting scheme from Friday 1st July until Friday 30th September 2022.

To help, all you need to do please is simply place your Tesco tokens that are issued at the tills into our Henshaws section.

In each store, if we receive the most tokens in our section, we receive £1,500. If we received the 2nd most votes, we receive £1,000 and if we receive the 3rd most votes, we receive £500, so every vote makes a difference.

Tesco Community Grants is run in partnership with community focused charity Groundwork, who has awarded grants to thousands of local community projects every year.

Tesco’s Community Grants scheme – previously Tesco Bags of Help – has already provided over £90 million to more than 40,000 projects across Britain.

In the first six months of 2022, Tesco Community Grants donated an incredible £6,000 to Henshaws. Thank you to all customers who voted; your votes really have made an impact.

How we help people with sight loss:

Since starting with Henshaws, they have supported me and given me the help I did not know I needed. Not being able to read the newspaper anymore was massive to me. After the training with Richard, I have been able to use technology to do this for me so no longer feel like I’m missing out. I enjoy the sessions and chatting to different people. They also help me to keep going. I’m so glad for Kathryn and Gail offering support as well. They’ve made a huge difference to me.

We can't do it without you
