Schoogle needs your help!

Schoogle has been successful in applying for Tesco’s Bags of Help Scheme and as such, the project will now be put forward to a customer vote in Tesco during July and August this year.

Schoogle, along with two other projects in the area, will be put to a vote in local Tesco stores where customers decide the outcome by voting for their favourite project with each and every shop! Voting begins on Saturday July 1st and will run until Thursday August 31st. The project will then be notified confirming the amount of funding they will receive as the project with the greatest number of votes across the region will receive up to £4,000! Project placed in second and third place will receive £2,000 and £1,000 respectively.

Here is a list of participating Tesco stores where voting will take place:

Church Village – Tesco Express (CF38 1PW) 
Llantwit Fardre – Tesco Express (CF38 2LT)
Pontypridd – Tesco Extra (CF37 5SN)
Pontypridd, Taff St. – Tesco Express - (CF37 4UY)
Trefforest – Tesco Express (CF37 1BT)

To be eligible to vote, all you need to do is make a purchase of any value (even a packet of chewing gum or a loaf of bread!), after which you will receive one token; the token can then be used to vote for whichever project you believe deserves the highest funding. To increase the chances of winning, be sure to spread the word amongst your colleagues, friends and family, and ask them to vote in any of the locations listed above!

Schoogle is a cluster-based magazine project created by the children Hawthorn, Heol y Celyn, Ffynon Taf, Coedpenmaen and Parc Lewis primary schools in Rhondda Cynon Taf. Creating the magazine helps children to develop their literacy, ICT skills and promote community engagement because Schoogle articles are researched, written and designed by the children, exploring themes that they are passionate about.
