Throughout January and February, you’ll be able to vote for us to receive up to £4,000 in funding from Tesco Bags of Help!
We’re looking to raise money to help fund our Love Your Canal waterways adoption project in North Glasgow which has been helping the community connect with their local canal since 2016.
On the summer-long project volunteers get involved with a range of activities including traditional lock-keeping and lime-mortaring, stonemasonry, litter-picking and biodiversity surveying.
Since 2016 volunteers have contributed over 2,900 hours to keeping the canal at its best.
What is Bags of Help?
Tesco teamed up with Groundwork to launch its community funding scheme, which sees grants of up to £4,000, £2,000 and £1,000 – all raised from carrier bag sales in Tesco stores – being awarded to local community projects. Bags of Help offers community groups and projects across the UK a share of revenue generated from carrier bag sales in Tesco store. The public will now vote in store during January and February on who should receive the awards.
