Little Victories in the Community calls out for votes to get a share of Tesco’s Stronger Starts fund!

Little Victories in the Community (LVITC) is bidding for a cash boost from the Tesco Stronger Starts scheme.

Stronger Starts provides grant awards of up to £1,500 to local community projects, with a particular focus on children and young people.

Three groups in every community have been shortlisted to receive grant awards and Tesco customers can vote for the group they think should take away the top award in their local Tesco store.

LVITC is one of the groups on the shortlist in Barton-upon-Humber and Winterton.

The grant will support LVITC's inclusive sport provision for children and young people, developing and building on the achievements of their football club, Little Victories FC, for players with cerebral palsy.

LVITC Volunteer Director Katrina Day shared her appreciation for LV's volunteers:

"Volunteers play a crucial role in the success of our community sports projects, often going above and beyond to ensure that our players and participants have the resources they need to excel, and this includes the extra time and effort required to create a successful grant application.

With the support of dedicated volunteers and our success in securing a Tesco Stronger Starts Grant, I am confident that our organisation can continue to achieve great success in the future, contributing to our aim of Changing Lives through Sport.

This includes continuing to develop Little Victories FC, our award winning football team."

Little Victories FC, seen above, will benefit hugely from this grant.

Voting is open in the Barton-upon-Humber store (DN18 5JT) and the Winterton store (DN15 9RN), up to the last week in June 2024.

Customers will cast their vote using a blue token given to them at the check-out each time they shop.

Tesco’s Stronger Starts – previously known as Tesco Community Grants - has already provided over £110 million to more than 60,000 projects across Britain.

Graham Duxbury, Groundwork’s UK Chief Executive, said:

“As a community charity, we have seen first-hand how groups supporting young people have been playing a much bigger role in ensuring children are getting access to spaces and services to support physical activity and mental health."

LVITC would like to extend their sincere gratitude to Little Victories FC supporter Wanda for her encouragement, and for kindly informing us of this wonderful opportunity.

Now... let's go to Tesco!
