Bags of Help is Tesco’s exciting local community grant scheme where the money raised by plastic carrier bags sales is being used to fund thousands of local projects in communities right across the UK. Projects that bring benefit to their community will get the green light – these range from improving community buildings and outdoor spaces to buying new equipment, training coaches or volunteers and hosting community events. Since the first customer vote was held in March 16, over £75,000 has been awarded to schools, sports clubs and community groups in the Beverley area.
On Tuesday 23rd January Tesco are holding a ‘Meet the Funder Day’. The event is aimed at community groups, sports clubs and schools from the Beverley area and is an opportunity to discuss any potential applications with the community charity Groundwork, who administer the scheme on Tesco's behalf.
If you think your group or project could benefit from funding of between £1000 and £4000 and would like help with developing your project or advice on your application, then here is your opportunity. Please note that even if you have benefited from Tesco Bags of Help previously, you can still re-apply for a different project.
