Tesco has announced that the money raised from the 5p bag charge in Tesco stores will be used to fund local projects to improve or run activities on greenspaces in communities across Scotland, England and Wales. The grant scheme is administered by Groundwork, working with greenspace scotland to deliver the programme in Scotland.
Projects that will get the green light as a result of the funding will include volunteer training, physical improvements of open spaces, equipment purchases, community events and sports and leisure activities.
You can submit an application for a grant of between £2,000 and £5,000. Projects will be awarded funding on a monthly basis following voting in their local Tesco stores. Three projects in each of the Tesco regions will receive a grant each month, with first place receiving up to £5K, second place £2K and third place £1K.
