Tesco Bags of help is grant funding available to all community based groups with projects from landscaping, sports equipment, sports kits, improving access, events, litter picking the range of projects the funding is for is huge!
It’s between 1k and 4k, all decided by the public voting through Tokens gained in the Tesco stores, shops and petrol stations.
This is open to all the clubs in Leicestershire region, as the regions of Melton Mowbray, Hinckley, and Loughborough are very low on Tesco applications for the November – December and future voting rounds, this means if those groups apply they could have some funding from this round voting. The region we call Leicester is currently oversubscribed but groups can still apply it may take longer to get on to a round.
Only drawback is this rounds deadline is late-September for the November to December voting….
I’ve attached a copy to read through of the online application form with the link below to apply online.
The project consent form is also attached, pretty easy to fill out and upload online if not able to upload a clear picture will be suffice.
Q10 is the most important question, you would need to be punchy and pull at the heart strings.
Always apply for the full £4,000
Finance section doesn’t have to be in full detail it can be vague here are just some examples used previously…

(Also once you’ve applied, received the grant funding and used it you can apply again straightaway)
