Tesco Bags of Help programme

8th October 2018

This grant scheme uses the money raised from the sale of carrier bags to fund  local projects in communities right across the UK.

Three community projects in each local area will be voted on by customers in Tesco stores, with projects changing every other month. Following the vote, the project that received the most votes in its area will receive a grant of up to £4,000, second place receiving up to £2,000 and third place up to £1,000. Customers are given a token when they buy their shopping that they can use to make their choice using the voting units in most stores.

Across South Yorkshire, £70,000 is distributed every two months. Full details here
