The date of the 2019 Redbridge Green Fair is Sunday 7th July. Organisers need to raise funds to run it. They have already been awarded a £3000 Redbridge Arts Grant, and raise about £6000 on stalls but need a fair bit more.
The Green Fair is in the customer vote for a Bags of Help grant from Tesco. It’s a scheme which gives community projects like us grants of up to £4,000 – all raised from the sale of carrier bags in Tesco stores. The public will now vote in store during March and April on who should receive the awards. Please support the Green Fair if you Shop at Tescos Express or Superstores in Ilford, Chadwell Heath, Seven Kings, Goodmayes, Barkingside, Gants Hill, Wanstead and South Woodford. Take along your own bag, but take a counter from your cashier to vote using money raised from the 5p's of those that still use plastic bags.
The Green Fair have definitely got £1,000 but they absolutely need the full £4,000 to bring you wonderful arts, eco attractions and facilities!
The Green Fair is brimming with community spirit because it's organised and run by volunteers! They need a big community push to help them raise funds for their well-loved event where the environment and community is top of the agenda, where it should be.
If you shop at Tesco please do vote for the Redbridge Green Fair. And of course take along a re-usable bag.
