Calls to take up Tesco offer of “Bags for Help”

Amanda Milling MP is urging local groups and community projects to apply to Tesco for grants.

Tesco’s Bags of Help is their local community grant scheme which funds thousands of community projects across Britain. So far the scheme has donated £143,113 to 48 projects in Cannock Chase since 2016. Tesco is encouraging more charities and community groups to apply for grants at Tesco.com/bagsofhelp.

Tesco is celebrating its 100th birthday by introducing a new grant for local good causes from its Bags of Help scheme. This year, a new initiative, Bags of Help Centenary Grants, will also provide larger grants of £25,000, £15,000 and £10,000 for groups promoting health in local communities during July / August, and for all community groups in November / December.

Cannock Chase MP, Amanda Milling, is urging local groups, sports clubs and voluntary organisations to apply for funding from the scheme.

Amanda Milling MP said: “The scheme sees considerable amounts of money available for local causes, I hope as many local groups as possible apply for funding and many voluntary groups across Cannock Chase get a much welcome boost.”
