Widnes Vikings are supporting Women of Windmill Hill after being shortlisted for the Tesco Bags of Help funding, and are asking for the help of Vikings supporters. 

Women of Windmill is a not-for-profit group set up by two local women, Irene Bramwell and Victoria Begg. It is a voluntary community group supporting women and the wider community on Windmill Hill.

The Tesco Bags of Help programme looks to use the money raised from the 5p bag charge in Tesco stores in England, Wales and Scotland to support community participation in local areas. Therefore, when visiting Tesco, Widnes, the Vikings are asking the Club's supporters to ask for a token when shopping and place it in the Women of Windmill Hill box in the store to help support a great cause.

Irene Bramwell, co-founder of Women of Windmill Hill, says: "Women of Windmill Hill is a voluntary community group supporting women and the wider community on Windmill Hill," she said.

"If successful in the Tesco Bags of Funding bid we hope to develop a wide range of activities for children and young people  in the woodland surrounding the Windmill Hill estate. The children and young people of Windmill Hill have limited activities to engage in .  Therefore, the funding will solely be used for woodland activities to engage children and young people whilst making use of this wonderful asset on their doorstep."
