Funding Opportunity for community green space projects

Groundwork and Tesco to deliver new community funding scheme

Tesco Bags of Help scheme opens for applications on 18 April

Do you know of a local community green space project that would benefit from funding? If so, they can apply to the second round of this fantastic community grant programme.

Bags of Help is administered by Groundwork, the community charity with a green heart, and is funded by Tesco customers from the proceeds of the 5p charge for plastic carrier bags. 
The scheme is open to community groups across England, Wales and Scotland to apply for grants of £8,000, £10,000 and £12,000 to improve local green space.
Projects that will get the green light as a result of the funding will include new pocket parks, sports facilities, schools, wildlife areas, seafront improvements and community gardens.
Tesco customers will be able to cast their vote on which shortlisted project in their area they would like to see receive the top grant from 1 October 2016.

You can find full details on the Groundwork dedicated website.

Community project toolkit

Groundwork has also launched a new Community Project Toolkit, which contains hints and tips for communities looking to develop local green space projects.
