Funding from Tesco Bags of Help
6 July 2018
Do you have a local community group that Benefits the Community and needs funding in and around the Thurso and NW area?
The Tesco Bags of Help grant scheme is permanently open for applications from a wide range of community groups, schools, local authorities and organisations. Bags of Help sees the money raised by the single use bag charge in Tesco stores in Scotland open for a great range of projects that support community activities.
Projects that get the green light as a result of the funding includes volunteer training, physical improvements of open spaces, equipment purchases, community events and sports and leisure activities.
Following a public vote in Tesco stores, three projects in each of the 70 Scottish Tesco regions will receive a grant every second month, with first place receiving up to £4K, second place up to £2K and third place up to £1K.
Bags of Help is administered by Groundwork, working in Scotland with greenspace scotland.
