Every little helps for Vale community groups and causes

Evesham Editorial 20th Jan, 2020   0

COMMUNITY groups and charities across Evesham and Pershore are being invited to apply for funding through the Tesco Bags of Help scheme.

Applications are officially open for 2020, with more than £6million to be shared across England throughout 2020.

Anyone can nominate groups and charities benefiting communities across England. Three groups will be awarded grant amounts of £2,000, £1,000 or £500 every three months.

The scheme sees money raised from the sale of reusable Bags for Life in Tesco stores across the country used to fund local projects. Customers decide where the money goes, casting their votes for shortlisted charities using blue tokens handed out in stores.




Keith Jackson, Bags of Help Manager at Tesco, said: “From projects to improve community spaces to groups looking for support with community events, purchasing new equipment and funding coaches, we encourage you to nominate and apply, and get involved in this fantastic scheme.
