Tesco has recently been in touch to ask me to let people in the Clydesdale area know that they are looking for applications for their Bags of Help scheme.
This scheme, in conjunction with Greenspace Scotland, uses the 5p bag charge to fund capital and revenue projects to benefit the community. Lots of different organisations can apply from community and voluntary organisations to schools, social housing providers, health bodies and local authorities. This list isn’t exhaustive and many other types of groups can be considered.
Projects will be awarded on a bi-monthly basis and will be decided by people voting in their local store. For more information, please go onto http://greenspacescotland.org.uk/bags-of-help.aspx
