Local groups and schools are being urged to come forward with a view to be considered for a grant.
To date, the company has dished out over £150K to community projects due to the incentive. Now they are looking for more groups to help in the Beverley area.
Cash is made available for projects as a result of the ‘carrier bag tax’. This money has then been used to support good causes.
“Bags of Help is Tesco’s exciting local community grant scheme where the money raised by plastic carrier bag sales. It is being used to fund thousands of local projects in communities right across the UK.”
“We are now welcoming new applications from our local community. From January, grants of £2,000, £1,000 and £500 will be available for groups to apply for.”
“Customer voting will take place in stores over three month periods. The first voting round will be from January to March.”
“It is also worth noting that if you have benefitted from a Bags of Help award previously, you can still apply for another project.”
Local Groups Can Get Help With Applying
Money given to groups has helped fund a variety of projects in Beverley. Such projects include play areas, sporting equipment and defibrillators.
Those who may want help with their application should contact Dave Ryley on 07871 572742. He can also be reached by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
