Tesco Local Community Scheme launches 19 October 2015

Oct 26, 2015


We’re delighted to announce that the money raised from the 5p bag charge in Tesco stores in the UK will be used to pay for a large number of local projects to improve green spaces in communities right across the UK. Projects that will get the green light as a result of the funding will include building new pocket parks, sports facilities, woodland walks and community gardens.

Groundwork will administer the funding and we will be working with greenspace scotland to support successful projects in Scotland.

The first funding round of the programme opens for applications across England, Wales and Scotland on 19 October 2015 and will close on 27 November 2015 at 12 noon. This will be your first chance to submit an application for a grant of up to £12,000 to create better and happier places where you live, although there will be two funding rounds per year over the next three years.
