Tesco invites Reading charities to apply for funding through Bags of Help Scheme

Tesco is inviting community groups and charities in Reading to apply for thousands of pounds’ worth of funding through the store’s Bags of Help Scheme.

Anyone can also nominate groups or charities that benefit the local community. Three groups will be awarded grant amounts of £2,000, £1,000 or £500 every three months. Customers will cast their vote for shortlisted charities using blue tokens handed out in stores to decide where the money goes.

The scheme runs in partnership with community charity Groundwork and uses money raised from the sale of reusable Bags for Life in Tesco stores to fund local projects.
