Tesco Bags of Help Grants Programme Opens for 2020 Applications

Developing and sustaining community life.

Community groups and schools can now apply for funding of up to £2,000 for projects in England, Wales and Scotland that benefit their local community. The funding has been made available by the Tesco’s Bags of Help programme and can cover a broad range of projects and can be used: to purchase sports kit, litter pickers, camping equipment; improvements to buildings; the development of outdoor space such as a play area or woodland; running a community event or supporting seasonal activities. A public vote determines which groups will receive a grant. In 2020, projects that receive the most votes will receive a maximum grant of £2,000; second place will receive up to £1,000 and third place a grant of up to £500. In 2020, three projects from each local area will be shortlisted to go to the public vote every three months.
