Tesco Bags of Help Grants
Community groups, not for profit organisations, schools and local authorities can apply at any time for funding from £1,000 to £4,000 for projects that bring benefits to the local community - these range from improving community buildings, parks and outdoor spaces to buying new equipment, training coaches or volunteers and hosting community events. The funding comes from the money raised by the sale of carrier bags in Tesco stores.
Three community projects in each local area will be voted on by customers in Tesco stores throughout Scotland, England and Wales, with projects changing every other month. Following the vote, the project that received the most votes in its area will receive a grant of up to £4,000, second place receiving up to £2,000 and third place £1,000. Customers are given a token when they buy their shopping that they can use to make their choice using the voting units in most stores.
greenspace scotland have a team of friendly Community Enablers covering the whole of Scotland that can support you to apply or answer questions about the fund so get in touch.
