Support Whaley Bridge Football Club with your Tesco Bags of Help tokens

Whaley Bridge Football Club (Junior/Senior) has made an application to the Tesco Bags of Help Grant Scheme to replace their worn out sit-on ‘garden’ mower with one that is more suited to the rigors of maintaining grass football pitches; they hope to procure a tractor that can tow/incorporate heavier equipment to deal with more than just simply cutting the grass.

Voting will take place from Thursday 1st March to Monday 30th April 2018 in your local Whaley Bridge Tesco store and Buxton’s Tesco Express.

Whaley Bridge AFC Chair, Steve Rampley says: “Please use your tokens to support your local football club; our fully qualified volunteer coaches manage all ages from 5 right through to senior level but without the means to maintain the pitches WBAFC, seniors and juniors, would find it very difficult to continue to support the community as it does now.”

Please remember to ask for your complimentary token when you check-out at Tesco.
