Frodsham Junior Football Club is bidding to bag a massive cash boost from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative.
The club is one of three groups you can vote for in Tesco’s Helsby store through March and April using the a blue token given to you at the check-out each time you shop. Please ask for a token if one is not offered – you don’t have to buy a carrier bag.
If Frodsham JFC has the most tokens by the end of April it will receive the maximum grant of £4,000!
Established in 1979, the Club will be celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2019 and is seeking to mark this milestone with an exciting new development by enabling the build of a 3G-football facility at Helsby High School.
The success of this project will not only provide Frodsham JFC with a state-of-the-art, safe and secure all weather 3G facility for training and match days, it will also provide Helsby High School and local primary schools with exclusive use of the facility during school hours. The wider Helsby & Frodsham community will also benefit with access to the facility for social use.
The potential funding from Bags of Help will be used for the specific purchase of junior football goals and netting.
Andy Loyden, Frodsham JFC’s Fundraising Officer says: “We are delighted to have been chosen for the Tesco Bags of Help scheme and we have great confidence that our local community (many of whom have had an association with Frodsham Juniors during its near 40-year history) will willingly support the Football Club when they visit our local Tesco store in Helsby.”
