Temple Cloud with Cameley Parish Council will receive £1000 that it will contribute to the building of a multi-wheels pump track on the Temple Cloud playing field. This project was requested by the community and will bring a much needed resource for young people in the area.
A community consultation took place in December 2020 and showed overwhelming support from the community for this project. This grant has been supported by a community poll of tokens in the local Tesco store. A further consultation is planned in September 2022 to discuss designs of the pump track along with a community crowdfunding event to raise a further £2000 towards the £60,000 project cost.

Claire de Silva, Tesco’s Head of Community, said: “Tesco Community Grants help support local good causes like the Temple Cloud Pump Track and especially those projects supporting young people, those providing food, and local causes close to our colleagues’ hearts.”
Tesco Community Grants is run in partnership with community focused charity Groundwork, who has awarded grants to thousands of local community projects every year.
Tesco’s Community Grants scheme – previously Tesco Bags of Help – has already provided over £90 million to more than 40,000 projects across Britain.
Groundwork’s National Chief Executive, Graham Duxbury, said: “Tesco Community Grants continues to give local projects the boost they need to help their communities thrive. We are pleased to have been able to help so many local good causes over the years and look forward to seeing what community organisations can achieve in the future with the right resources.”
Funding is available to community groups and charities looking to fund local projects that bring benefits to communities.
