Tesco Bags of Help Centenary Grant

11th March 2019

To celebrate Tesco’s centenary there will be two special voting rounds of their local community grant scheme.

The rounds will be July/August, prioritising cancer, heart disease and diabetes projects, and November /December 2019 for general community benefit.

Grants will be awarded to not for profit organisations including registered charities, community interest companies, health bodies (e.g. Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), NHS Hospital Trusts, Foundation Trusts), local authorities and social housing providers.

The types of projects funded will be very broad and will cover the direct costs needed to deliver the project, this could range from:

  • improvements to a building of regional or national significance that benefits the whole community
  • providing equipment that will benefit the whole region
  • improvements to an outdoor space of regional or national significance
  • delivering activities or charitable services across a whole region

Applications are assessed by Groundwork to ensure they are eligible.

Tesco shortlist the projects to determine which go forward to the customer vote.

The project that receives the most votes in each region (ours is South Yorkshire & Lincolnshire) will receive a grant of up to £25,000, second place receiving up to £15,000 and third place up to £10,000.
