Vote for MCH’s sensory room at ourZone



Vote for MCH’s sensory room at ourZone

Our charity, Medway Cares, is shortlisted to bag a cash boost from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative which would support us to purchase goods to update and improve the sensory room at ourZone, our day centre for members with physical or long term health conditions on Pattens Lane in Rochester.

Tesco teamed up with Groundwork to launch its community funding scheme, which sees grants of £4,000, £2,000 and £1,000 raised from carrier bag sales in Tesco stores awarded to local community projects. Three groups in every Tesco region have been shortlisted to receive the cash award and shoppers are being invited to head along to Tesco stores to vote for who they think should take away the top grant.

Medway Cares and ourZone need you to vote for our project: ‘a truly sensory experience’. Voting is open in local Tesco stores (Tesco Express in Chatham, Tesco Extra in Gillingham, Tesco Metro in Rainham, and Tesco Express stores on Sturdee Avenue and Victory Pier in Gillingham)  in July and August – please support ourZone members by casting your vote using a token given to you at the check-out in store each time you shop.

If you or someone you know would be interested in finding out more about ourZone, please call 01634 335580.
