I am hoping to draw attention to the Tesco Bags of Help Funding that is now open to applications. The second round of Tesco’s Bags of Help grant programme is now open with grants of £8,000, £10,000 or £12,000 available.
Grants are available to a wide range of community groups, local authorities and organisations across the country, including Inverclyde, to improve green spaces. The application deadline is Friday the 3rd of June 2016.
This is a great opportunity to get funding for greenspace community projects such as woodland walks, community gardens and sports facilities for schools.
I would encourage any projects working with green spaces to apply for this funding, you would have the full support of Inverclyde behind you.
Community Enabler Co-ordinator for Inverclyde, Emma Halliday, can provide support or advice when submitting applications. Emma can be contact on email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Full eligibility criteria and detailed application guidance is available at: http://www.groundwork.org.uk/sites/tescocommunityscheme.
Groundwork anticipates grants being awarded to 144 successful groups across Scotland in November 2016.
