Tesco ‘Bags of Help’ fund

Following a 10-week trial in Aberdeen, Dundee and Norwich, Tesco is to stop selling single use carrier bags from 28 August and will replace them with a new 10p ‘Bag for Life’.

Community groups, will still benefit from the funding generated by sales of the new bag through the Bags of Help grant funding stream managed by Groundwork UK.

Grants of up to £4,000 are available to charities and community groups applying for support for local projects that improve the environment. Voluntary or community organisations (as well as schools, health bodies parish/town councils, local authorities and social housing providers) can apply at any time.
