VOTING has opened today – giving Fairfield First School the chance to win £10,000 or £12,000 for its sensory garden project.
The school won £8,000 for its proposal of the sensory garden project – which it submitted to the Bags of Help competition – launched by Tesco and Groundwork just before Christmas.
However, it now has the chance to win an even greater amount if it receives enough votes of support from members of the public.
Funds for the awards were raised by the the 5p charge made to Tesco customers for plastic carrier bags.
The Sensory Garden itself will involve developing the school’s pond area into a more interactive and accessible learning environment.
As well as learning sessions, it will also provide the children with additional space to explore away from the busy playground.
Residents of Bromsgrove can vote for Fairfield School’s project by visiting their local Tesco store where they will be given a token to put into one of three boxes.
The more tokens that Fairfield School receives – the greater the opportunity it will have of securing the money to build this, fun, creative and positive project for its children. Voting will continue at Tesco stores until next Monday (March 6).
