Tesco 'Bags of Help' Grant Scheme


Tesco's Bags of Help scheme is changing! We are expanding to fund a wider range of projects - and you can now apply for a grant all year round.

In order to give Tesco customers a regular say on where their money goes, the Bags of Help scheme is now open all year round for applications from community organisations. In addition, the money raised by the bag charge in Tesco stores is open to a greater range of projects.

The projects must meet the criteria of bringing benefits to the community.

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 receives 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.

Bags of Help is available to a wide range of community groups and organisations across England, Wales and Scotland. The scheme funds projects that benefit the local community.
