If you plan on doing your shopping in the Welshpool TESCO store this weekend, please remember to lend your support to The New Saints FC Foundation, as they bid to receive a cash boost from the TESCO Bags of Help prize fund.
Should they be successful, the Foundation plans to use the money to provide a weekly one hour sports session for young people in Welshpool, offering young people structured sports participation activities, where they’ll receive coaching to help develop their footballing skills, with the overall aim being to encourage them to join and play regularly with their local grassroots football club, either Welshpool Town FC or Welshpool Ladies FC.
The project has been running in the town for the past year, thanks to funding received from the Welsh Football Trust, and it’s proved extremely successful in engaging disengaged teenage girls in positive sports activities.
Voting runs until the end of April and you can cast your vote using the token you receive each time you shop. All you need to do is deposit your token into the Welshpool youth activities box, then the box with the most tokens when the voting closes will bag the top prize.
The winning project will receive £4,000, with £2,000 and £1,000 being awarded to second and third place respectively.
