Tesco shoppers set for share of £500,000 gold rush

Posted onPosted on 12th Mar

Tesco shoppers  have a golden hour to win a share of £500,000 for their local school or a community group that supports children on Saturday. 

As part of the supermarket’s ‘Stronger Starts’ campaign, between 12noon and 1pm, shoppers in 100 Tesco stores can take a lucky dip to find a gold version of Tesco’s famous blue voting token. 

 Customers who find a gold token will be able to choose which local school or community project will receive a £5,000 Golden Grant to spend on equipment or healthy food to help give children a stronger start in life. 

Among the participating stores is the Tesco Express in Bilsthorpe, while in Mansfield the three local recipients vying for a chance of being awarded the Golden Token and £5,000 are 10th Mansfield Scout Group, Caudwell Children, and Little Miracles Charity Incorporated Organisation.

Schools and children’s groups can apply via Groundwork for a grant by going to . Successful applications will go to a vote in their local Tesco store, where customers choose which of the three projects they’d like to support by voting with a blue token. 

Since Tesco launched its Community Grants programme in 2016, more than £100m has been given to more than 50,000 local schools and community groups.
