Tesco is urging local community groups and good causes across Milton Keynes to get their applications in to bag a share of its £13million carrier bag charge fund.


The supermarket has once again teamed up with Groundwork to launch its Bags of Help initiative, which sees grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 – all raised from the 5p bag levy – being awarded to environmental and greenspace projects.

Applications for the next round of the funding opened on 18 April – and with the deadline of 3 June – Tesco is urging groups in Milton Keynes to apply now and avoid missing out.

All interested charities and community groups have to do is apply online at http://www.groundwork.org.uk/tescocommunityscheme or call the helpline on 0121 237 5780.
