A Somerset charity has called for Tesco shoppers to vote in the supermarket chain’s Bags Of Help scheme.

Somerset Wildlife Trust has been selected as one of the charities in the area to benefit from the chain’s community fundraising initiative.

The scheme awards grants raised from the 5p carrier bag charge to fund community projects across the country.

If successful, the Bags Of Help could donate up to £4,000 to support the trust’s Brilliant Coast project.

The project will ensure Somerset’s coastal wildlife has a healthy future.

Director of conservation, policy and strategy at Somerset Wildlife Trust, Michele Bowe, said: “This work we do on Somerset’s coast, including important survey work, gives us the information we need to create a comprehensive conservation plan to protect Somerset’s marine wildlife.”

You can vote for the trust at Burnham’s Tesco, in Ben Travers Way.
