Three Armed Forces groups in Bury St Edmunds are set for a cash boost through Tesco's Bags of Help campaign.
The campaign will see 17 armed forces groups across the country share £100,000 in funding after Tescos customers voted in their thousands to chose which projects they thought deserved a slice of the pot.
Scotty’s Little Soldiers are set to receive £4,000, Bury ST Edmunds Sea Cadets £1,252 and 301 Sqn ATC Civilian Committee will receive £1,000.
Alec Brown, head of community and local communications at Tesco, said: “Our servicemen and women make great sacrifices not just for the communities to have benefited from this special round of voting but in communities across the UK and beyond. It’s a real privilege top award these groups a Bags of Help grant and we are very much looking forward to seeing how the funds are put into action helping serving men and women and their families.”
