Tesco Bags of Help

Back to Grants

Tesco runs a scheme called ‘Bags of Help,’ where the money raised from the 5p bag levy in Tesco stores is being used to fund thousands of community projects across the UK. The projects must promote community participation in the development and use of outdoor spaces.

An assessment of all local applications is made each month, with a three-way shortlist being made for shoppers to vote on their preferred winner.
