Three groups set to benefit from a share of £30,000 have been announced – and now it’s your turn to decide how much each one will get.

The Recorder has teamed up with Tesco’s Bags of Help scheme, an initiative which will see money raised from the 5p bag charge donated to community groups.

It will give out grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 across the UK, including Newham.

The shortlisted charities are:

? The Shipman Youth Centre, which would create a sports area to keep young people off the streets.

You may also want to watch:

? The Boleyn Road Community Garden, which would transform derelict land to use as a vegetable patch and social area.

? Kensington Primary School, which would enhance the school’s outdoor areas.
