Bags of help cash on offer for Bromsgrove and Rubery community groups

Sun 12 Jan 2020

FUNDING is available for community groups and charities across Bromsgrove, Rubery and South Birmingham 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 and those selected 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.

And 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 purchasing new equipment, we encourage you to nominate and apply and get involved in this fantastic scheme.

“Bags of Help has provided more than £80million of funding to more than 27,000 local community projects to date and there is so much more we want to help groups to achieve.”
