Bags of Help: The Blossom Project
Our Blossom Project has been shortlisted for the Tesco Mini Bags of Help Community Project. If successful, the Project will provide a community garden space with raised flower, herb and veg beds for our women. The therapeutic space will allow women to reconnect with nature, promote mindfulness and healthy eating, provide educational opportunities and skills for life, and boost self-esteem. It will also promote sustainable and environmentally friendly living spaces by supplying produce which can be used in our meals for rough sleepers, and by our catering Social Enterprise.
To secure the full funding, we have gone into a vote by local Tesco customers. We need to achieve the most ‘tokens’ from customers to win the vote and secure full funding! If you’re in the local area please support us in trying to provide this opportunity for our women. You can see the list of Tesco stores taking part here.
About the scheme: Tesco teamed up with Groundwork to launch its Bags of Help initiative across England and Wales. The scheme sees three community groups and projects in each of around 200 Tesco regions awarded grants of £5,000, £2,000 and £1,000 – all raised from the 5p bag charge.
Bags of Help offers community groups and projects across the UK a share of revenue generated from the 5p charge levied on single-use carrier bags. The public will now vote in store throughout March and April on who should receive the £5,000, £2,000 and £1,000 awards.

Sewing Machine Appeal
The Marylebone Centre offers sewing classes which have proved very popular over the last few years. The classes provide a space to learn hand and machine sewing skills in a relaxed and friendly environment. As well as learning new skills the students also benefit from the social and relaxation aspects of the classes.
“So far I’ve made a cushion cover, then an apron and now I’m working on this blanket. At first, I found sewing difficult, but now I think it’s very relaxing! I’m grateful for the chance of learning this new skill.” (Sewing class student)
The classes are restricted with only 4 sewing machines available for up to 10 students at any one class. We are therefore raising money to pay for 4 more sewing machines. If you would like to donate to this appeal please follow the link below to our Just Giving appeal page.
Do you have an unwanted sewing machine? We also welcome donations of sewing machines. Please contact Bethan Tribe at email@example.com or 0207 262 3818 for more information.
