We’re excited to share the news that from 1st April – 30th June 2020, Tesco shoppers will be able to vote for acta’s Making Time project after every transaction made at one of thirteen stores across Bristol. Of the three organisations to choose from, those with the highest number of votes across the three months will receive the highest level of funding at £2000 – with 2nd place receiving £1000, and third place £500. Help us get the top prize by dropping a blue token in for us!

About Making Time

Making Time is a project that provides a free weekly social lunch and arts session here in Bedminster for isolated older people to come together, try something new and have fun. It’s an essential part to the week of some people, and an opportunity to make and develop friendships.

Feedback from some of our participants about the project…

“I’ve never missed a day and I never will, I like it here”

“I feel grateful to be amongst such a decent and warm group of people.”
