Does your community organisation qualify for a grant?
This quote is taken from the Groundwork website which is administering the distribution of the grants.
On 5 October 2015 carrier bag charging began in England, bringing it in-line with schemes already in place in the rest of the UK. As a result, Tesco, like other large retailers, are required by law to charge a minimum of 5p for every carrier bag used by a customer.
The money raised by Tesco customers will be used for grants to improve green spaces in communities across England, Wales and Scotland. Projects that will get the green light as a result of the funding will include creating pocket parks, sports facilities, woodland walks and community gardens.
