Headway Cambridgeshire is one of the charities to benefit from a donation from the Tesco Charity Trust Community Awards scheme. The scheme recognizes projects that operate in the local communities around Tesco stores in the UK and support health, opportunities for young people or environmental sustainability. Last year 4 worthy causes in Cambridgeshire received over £6,200 from the Tesco Charity Trust.
Headway Cambridgeshire was awarded £2,130 from the Charity Trust for their ‘From Seed to Plate’ project. Kathy Bullock, Services Manager at Headway said: “Headway Cambridgeshire was very fortunate to receive a grant of £2,130 from the Tesco Charity Trust for our ‘From Seed to Plate’ project. This funding has enabled people living with a brain injury to access horticulture and cooking sessions, growing their own fruit and vegetables from scratch and learning how to cook their produce to create delicious and healthy food. Thank you Tesco, this wouldn’t have been possible without you!”
Josh Hardie, Corporate Responsibility Director for Tesco said: “We want to be a good neighbour and do everything we can to help our local communities right across the country. Our Community Awards have proved instrumental in making sure a huge number of community projects get off the ground that wouldn’t otherwise have gone ahead, and I’d encourage all not for profit organisations who think they could make good use of the money to get involved and apply.”
“ The Hospital Brain Injury Co-ordinator became someone who absolutely understood how I felt, I didn’t need to explain. I could talk about my fears and worries. She was such a great support through the difficult days, but could also celebrate the small step successes, which was important to me. ”
