BAGS of HELP- Tesco Community Grant

Sep 9, 2016 | Community Grants Scheme

The council has been informed the Tesco Bags of Help Grant scheme has had some changes, which you might find interesting.

In order to give Tesco customers a say much more frequently on where their money goes, as of today the Tesco Bags of Help grant scheme will now be permanently open for applications from community groups!

There are also a number of other exciting changes to the scheme.

Bags of Help will now see the money raised by the 5p bag charge in Tesco stores in England, Wales and Scotland opened up to a greater range of projects that support community participation in the development and use of open spaces.

Projects that will now get the green light as a result of the funding will now include volunteer training, physical improvements of open spaces, equipment purchases, community events and sports and leisure activities.

Following a public vote, three projects in each of the 200 Tesco regions will receive a grant each month, with first place receiving up to £5K, second place up to £2K and third place up to £1K.

Cornwall will now have two application regions, north and south.
North will include the catchment areas of stores in Austell and Newquay, Wadebridge, Padstow, Launceston and Callington.
South will therefore cover Truro, Redruth, Camborne, St Ives, Falmouth, Helston and Penzance.
