Bags of Help Programme Offers Monthly Grants to Community Groups

Posted on

The Tesco’s Bags of Help grants programme invites customers to vote for their favourite community project every month.

Until now the awards programme has been run every nine months. The new monthly format is expected to result in more than 7,000 community projects across England, Scotland and Wales receiving funding each year.

Tesco offers grants through its Bags of Help Programme which is funded by Tesco customers from the proceeds of the 5p charge for plastic carrier bags as a result of a government carrier bag levy.

Each month, an in-store vote will determine which projects will be funded and three local community projects will be voted on in Tesco stores each month across 200 regions throughout Great Britain. In each region, the project that receives the most votes from all stores in their region will receive a grant of up to £5,000. The second placed project receives up to £2,000 and third placed up to £1,000.

The funding is for projects which deliver improvements to the physical environment and/or encourage the use and long term stability of outdoor spaces.

A range of not-for-profit organisations can apply. This includes voluntary and community organisations, registered charities, community interest companies, friends of groups with a constitution, schools, health bodies, parish, town and community councils.
