Tesco Bags of Help Centenary Grants are two special voting rounds of the Tesco local community grant scheme.

Applications are assessed by Groundwork to ensure they are eligible. Tesco colleagues will shortlist the projects to determine which go forward to the customer vote.

Three community projects in each region will be voted on by customers in Tesco stores throughout the UK, 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.

Who can apply?

A constituted community group, registered charity or CIC.

What types of project will they fund?

They will fund projects providing community benefit across the whole voting region, or a significant part of it. Groups in Reading fall within the Berkshire and Oxfordshire region.
