Tesco in appealing for local groups to put themselves forward for their local community grant scheme Bags of Help.

To date a number of local groups, schools and charities have enjoyed the benefits of thousands of pounds which they have been able to put to use delivering a range of community projects.

Community Champion, said;

“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 two years ago, over £80,000 has been awarded to schools, and community groups in the area.”

“If you think your school, 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 please contact myself on 07736 483690 or else via e-mail: @communityattesco.co.uk.”

“May I also remind people that even if you have benefited from Tesco Bags of Help previously, you can still re-apply for a different project.”

Local MP Graham Stuart is a keen supporter of the incentive offered by Tesco, that sees a 5p charge on plastic shopping bags used by shoppers, he said;

“Not only is this small charge an importance piece of the Government’s ambitious environmental plans, but it can also help to bring some brilliant community projects to life.”

“In 2017, for example, Primary School in received a £3700 grant to transform its outdoor play area. I hope to see more initiatives benefit from this excellent fund.”
