To all Altrincham FC fans and friends of the club,

If you shop at Tesco, you'll be aware that they run a 'Bags for Life' scheme, offering funding to local good causes or charity groups to help fund projects that support the local community.

We have successfully passed the initial application phase and we are eligible to receive funding from Tesco Baguley and Northern Moor shops. Three projects get funding after all the tokens are collected over March and April in these two stores, with the highest token project receiving upto 4000, second receiving upto 2000 and third receiving upto 1000. So we will receive at least 1000 to our chosen project.

As a lot of you will know, Altrincham FC Community Sports Trust is the registered charity for Altrincham FC, so all our activities are self-funded (by customers paying) or part-funded/free (part of this funded by grants). Most of our activities over recent years have been predominantly subsidised by The National league Trust to get new sessions off the ground.

We have applied for this Tesco grant to support a new project we are running at Broomwood Community Wellbeing Centre. We are hoping to provide sports sessions 2-3 nights a weeks for young people, free of charge. These sessions are to be led by qualified coaching staff, representing Altrincham FC. There is Walking Football, Disability Football and Veterans Football at this site and already, there is clearly a need for youth provision. We are also planning to include holiday sports sessions and family fun days there in the near future.

So, if you happen to collect tokens from Tesco, please would you consider putting yours towards a worthy cause on behalf of Altrincham FC? If you are interested to know more, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Many Thanks,
Judy Henson
