Tesco community grants fund thousands of local projects right across the UK. Projects that bring benefit to their community will get the green light – these range from improving community buildings and outdoor spaces to buying new equipment, training coaches or volunteers and hosting community events.
Administration of the local funding is being managed by community charity, Groundwork, which specialises in transforming communities and the local environment for the better.
