Do you know a greenspace project in Aberdeenshire Council that would benefit from funding? Local authorities, community groups and organisations can all apply for Tesco Bags of Help funding!
The second round of Tesco Bags of Help is open from 18 April. Bags of Help is available to a wide range of community groups, local authorities and organisations across England, Wales and Scotland and they can apply for grants to improve local green spaces. Successful projects will go forward to a public vote in Tesco stores which will decide whether they receive a grant of £8,000, £10,000 or £12,000. Projects that will get the green light as a result of funding will include new pocket parks, sports facilities, schools, woodland walks and community gardens.
Bags of Help is administered by Groundwork, working in Scotland with greenspace scotland, and funded by Tesco customers from the proceeds of the 5p charge for plastic carrier bags. It will fund projects that benefit communities by physically improving open and greenspaces that do not charge for access. Groundwork anticipate grants being awarded to 144 successful groups across Scotland in November 2016
