Tesco has teamed up with Groundwork to launch its Bags of Help initiative across England
and Wales. The scheme will see three community groups and projects awarded grants of
£12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 – all raised from the 5p bag charge.
Bags of Help offers community groups and projects in each of Tesco’s 390 regions across the
UK a share of revenue generated from the five pence charge levied on single-use carrier bags. The public will now vote in store from 27 February until 6 March on who should receive the
£12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 awards
