A blue token collection is currently underway is for Swinford Active Retirement Group, Swinford Forogie and the newly established Swinford Men’s Shed.
Local people have the opportunity to nominate a community group or local charity that they feel will benefit from being part of the fund. Every six weeks, three groups are selected and customers then have the opportunity to vote for their preferred cause every time they shop in Tesco.
This is a great opportunity for local groups to benefit from some extra funding. So if you have a cause that is close to your heart, why not fill out an application form and avail of this chance to secure some much needed cash for your cause.
