St. George’s success in the Tesco Bags of Help Grant Scheme

We are delighted that our application to the Tesco Bags of Help Grant Scheme was successful in a customer vote in Tesco stores during March and April 2018.

We are delighted that our application to the Tesco Bags of Help Grant Scheme was successful when our project put forward to a customer vote in Tesco stores during March and April 2018. We received a grant which enabled us to buy much better seating for our Services and Events.

Tesco teamed up with Groundwork to launch its community funding scheme, which sees grants of £4,000, £2,000 and £1,000 – all raised from the 5p bag levy – being awarded to local community projects. 

Bags of Help offers community groups and projects across the UK a share of revenue generated from the 5p charge levied on single-use carrier bags. The public voted in store during March and April 2018 on who should receive the £4,000, £2,000 and £1,000 awards. You can find out more here.

Voting took place from Thursday 1st March to Monday 30th April 2018 and we later found the amount of funding we would receive. 

The project with the highest number of votes across our region will receive £4,000 (or the amount that was requested up to this value), the second placed project £2,000 (or the amount that was requested up to this value), and the third placed project £1,000. 

Please see below a list of stores taking part in the voting on our project. We would appreciate it if you can vote for us.
