Tesco Bags of Help Programme
Created: 02/12/2016, Updated: 05/12/2016
The Tesco Bags of Help Programme Offers Monthly Grants to Britain's Community Groups and is offering funding on a monthly basis.
Tesco’s Bags of Help grants programme will invite customers to vote for their favourite community project every month.
Each month, an in-store vote will determine which projects will be funded. 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 received 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.
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.
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.
