• Community Groups Apply for a Bags of Help grant

    Round two of the Bags of Help grants scheme, organised by Groundwork and funded by the proceeds of the Tesco carrier bag levy, will open on Monday 18 April.
    Grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 are available to local community groups who are invited to submit proposals for projects like new pocket parks; sports and play facilities; school grounds; nature reserves; green corridors; woodland walks and community gardens and allotments.
    Groundwork will assess and shortlist all of the applications received and pass them on to a Tesco shortlisting panel who will agree the three successful local projects that will be voted on by Tesco customers’ in-store over two set weekends.
    Further information, including more details of the project categories, can be seen here.
