Groups across the UK are being encouraged to apply now for a grant for local community projects, thanks to funding from Tesco's 'Bags of Help' scheme.
'Bags of Help', a grants scheme funded by Tesco customers through the 5p carrier charge and administered by Groundwork, provides grants of £5,000, £2,000 and £1,000 for projects that use or provide access to outdoor spaces in communities.
Grants are available for all manner of groups including voluntary or community organisations (including registered charities/companies), schools, health bodies (e.g. CCGs, NHS Hospital Trust, Foundation Trust), Parish/Town Councils, local authorities and social housing providers.
Since October 2016 the scheme has awarded £24million to communities across England, Wales and Scotland.
Do you have a project in mind or know someone who does? Then why not apply for a grant or spread the word about this amazing opportunity?
