TESCO: BAGS OF HELP CENTENARY GRANTS
Posted: Thu, 28 Mar 2019 10:38
Groundwork Luton & Bedfordshire is working with Tesco to help mark the supermarkets 100th birthday by offering communities in the UK the chance to bag their share of £100,000.
As part of the supermarket's anniversary celebrations, community organisations from across the East of England are being invited to apply for their share of the cash.
In Bedfordshire the Bags of Help Centenary Grant is open for applications.
Throughout July and August the first of two special funding rounds will concentrate on groups delivering health and wellbeing benefits, with a particular focus on groups tackling cancer, heart disease and diabetes, in line with the supermarket's National Health Partnership.
Applications are open to all community projects bringing benefits across the region, with Tesco colleagues involved in shortlisting three applications in each area. Customers are then invited to vote for which group they'd like to receive grants of £25,000, £15,000 and £10,000, casting their votes using blue tokens handed out at checkout points.
Another voting round will launch in November, with even more projects sharing in the cash over the course of the year.
Once applications are assessed by Groundwork for eligibility, Tesco colleagues will shortlist projects to go forward to the customer vote.
Tesco will fund 100% of the project costs and match funding is not required however you are welcome to acquire additional funding from elsewhere.
Deadline: None specified. Applicants are encouraged to apply ASAP.
