Local not-for-profit organisations from across the UK can apply now for a grant in 2020.
Bags of Help is Tesco’s local community awards programme where the money raised from the 5p bag levy in Tesco stores is used to fund community projects across the UK.
A public vote determines which groups will receive a grant. In 2020, projects that receive the most vote will receive a grant of £2,000; second place will receive a grant of up to £1,000 and third place a grant of up to £500.
The funding can support a wide range of projects including but not limited to:
Projects can be a stand-along project or a discrete, self-contained part of a larger scheme or part of a phased project.
As this is a rolling programme, voting for projects will be happening continuously in Tesco stores. In 2020, three projects from each local area will be shortlisted to go to the public vote every three months.
There are no deadlines. Applications can be made at any time.
