Apply for the Tesco Bags of Help Grant Programme today!

31 Oct

Tesco Bags of Help funds local projects that improve the environment. Grants of up to £5,000 are available.

Bags of Help is Tesco’s local community grant scheme where the money raised from the 5p bag levy in Tesco stores is being used to fund thousands of community projects across the UK. Grants will be awarded to voluntary or community organisations, schools, health bodies, Parish/Town Councils and local authorities, social housing providers and others.

The projects must meet the criteria of promoting community participation in the development and use of outdoor spaces. Projects that would typically receive funding (but are not limited to) include: purchasing bee hives and seeding wildflower meadow on a community allotment, developing a community garden or orchard, supporting a gardening project which helps local isolated residents form a gardening club, helping to set up Britain in Bloom local group, purchasing plants, planters, forks, spades and compost  and funding a series of summer events in a local park.

Bags of Help is always open to applications from community projects.

Three local community projects will be voted on in Tesco stores each month across Tesco regions throughout England, Scotland and Wales. 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 £1000. Every year, over 7000 projects will receive funding through this scheme.
