Tesco Bags of Help

Glasgow, United Kingdom

Bags of Help is Tesco's exciting local community grant scheme where the money raised from the 5p bag charge is being used to fund thousands of local projects in communities right across the UK.

Launched in 2015, Bags of Help sees charities and community organisations awarded grants to fund local projects.

Three community projects in each local area will be voted on by customers in Tesco stores throughout the UK, with projects changing every other month. Following the vote, the project that received the most votes in its area will receive a grant of up to £4,000, second place receiving up to £2,000 and third place up to £1,000. Customers are given a token when they buy their shopping that they can use to make their choice using the voting units in most stores.

Groundwork - the community charity with a green heart - administers the funding and is are working with greenspace scotland to support successful projects in Scotland.
