Tesco Bags of Help Centenary Grants

Wednesday, February 13th, 2019

These grants have been develped specially to celebrate 100 years of Tesco.  Bags of Help Centenary Grants are now open for applications for £25,000 from not for profit organisations for a broad range of projects that will provide community benefit across a whole region, or a significant part of it.  Scotland is divided into five special regions where Tesco customers can vote for their favourite project.

The Centenary Grants are two special voting rounds of the standard Tesco Bags of Help local community grant scheme and offer a unique opportunity to help more people across five regional areas in Scotland. Voting for these grants will take place in July/August and November/December 2019. Following the vote, the project that receives the most votes in the voting region will receive a grant of up to £25,000, second place receiving up to £15,000 and third place up to £10,000.

The July/august 2019 voting period will feature projects with a Health and Wellbeing theme, and projects focussing on cancer, heart disease and diabetes will be prioritised.
