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 Post 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 Barking and Dagenham.
The three shortlisted charities are:
? Sustrans, which would build a bike track on the Marks Gate estate.

? The William Street Quarter committee, which is looking to turn two areas close to a new housing development into a creative play area.
? The East Locality Parents’ Forum which aims to create a fully accessible community garden.
