Tescos Bags for Life

My name is Paula Williams and I am the Community Champion for Tesco Oxford 2 (Cowley Retail Park) and I wanted to share some information, with you, about a funding scheme available to local community groups and charities – Bags Of Help is Tesco’s exciting local community grant scheme. Supported by Groundwork, (and Greenspace in Scotland), Bags of Help funds thousands of local projects across the UK, with our customers able to choose where the money goes by voting in store every time they shop. The scheme is open to any project that brings benefit to the local community.
 
Here are some examples:
 
·         Supporting the local scout group to buy new camping equipment
·         Repairs to a local community centre or space.
·         Creating a new playground
·         New kit for a local football team
·         Buying books for a school library
·         Providing training for volunteers
 
But the list and opportunities to support are endless!
