Tesco Community Grant Programme – Bags of Help

Are you looking for funding support for projects or events?

 My name is Lucy Ross-Millar, I am the new Community Enabler for Groundwork South and work in partnership with the Tesco Community Grant programme Bags of Help, covering Kidlington and the surrounding area. I am new to the role and would like to introduce myself to community groups in the areas I work in.

 I am contacting you to let you know about the Tesco Bags of Help grant scheme, as you may be interested in applying for a grant of £4,000, £2000 or £1000.

 Applications are currently very low in your voting region, so if you do have a project you could apply for funds, I would positively encourage you to do so. If you apply soon, you would be in with a strong chance of securing funding.

 Some examples of suitable community projects include: volunteer training, physical improvements of open spaces, community garden projects, equipment purchases, improvements to a community building, and running a community event or seasonal activity etc.

 The grant is permanently open and groups can apply at any time as there is no cut off period.

 I work in partnership with Tesco on the funding programme in the South West region. The grant scheme is funded by the 5p government carrier bag levy and runs across England, Wales and Scotland.

 Following a public vote, three projects in each of the Tesco regions will receive a grant every two months, with first place receiving up to £4K, second place up to £2K and third place up to £1K.
