Tesco Bags of Help funds local projects that improve communities. Grants of up to £4,000 are available.

 

Bags of Help is Tesco’s local community grant scheme where the money raised from the plastic bags sales 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.

 

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

 

The types of projects funded will be very broad and will cover the direct costs needed to deliver the project, this could range from:

  • Purchasing items which will benefit local community groups 
  • Improvements to a building that benefits the local community 
  • Developing an outdoor space 
  • Running a community event or activity 
  • Supporting seasonal activities

Three community projects in each local area will be voted on by customers in Tesco stores throughout the UK, with projects changing every other month. Following the vote, the project that received the most votes in its area will receive a grant of up to £4,000, second place receiving up to £2,000 and third place up to £1,000.
