Spautism has successfully applied for the Tesco Community Grants scheme in Northampton, which is taking place from now until the end of March.
The scheme puts forward three community initiatives to a public vote; the initiative with the most votes will receive the most funding. By voting for Spautism you will be helping to support people with autism through sport and reduce loneliness.
Voting is taking place in six Tesco stores in Northampton from the first week of January 2022 to 31st March 2022.

When visiting a Tesco store
Tesco stores tend to be busiest at the weekend and between 4pm and 8pm on a weekday with people shopping after work hours, while the quietest periods tend to be after 8pm on weekdays. However, this may vary depending on the day of visit and the size of the store.
Most of the noise in Tesco stores comes from people talking and moving; however you may also hear operational sounds such as air conditioning whirring, moving of items and trolleys, the bleep of the checkout, and music from the sound system.
As of December 2021, it is mandatory that all members of the public wear face masks in shops, unless exempt.
