Tesco have sent us the following information.
Tesco Bags of Help COVID-19 Communities Fund.
Any not-for-profit organisations can apply for a Bags of Help COVID 19 grant worth £500 to support vulnerable groups. The fund can be used for ongoing organisation costs or for project delivery. Groups that already have Tesco Bags of Help funding can apply to this new fund. Due to the need to respond quickly to the emergency, there is a streamlined application process and funds will be given out every week.
The fund has been running since start of April, and we’re now in to the 2nd round.
We are low on applications in your area, so encourage groups to put in an application ASAP and please spread the word to other organisations you think may benefit (we’re aware many small grassroots community groups have been set up in response to the Covid pandemic – helping vulnerable members of the community which you may be a part of).
More information and the application form can be found here.
