Action for Change
Tesco has teamed up with Greenspace Scotland to launch its Bags of Help initiative across Scotland. The scheme will see three community groups and projects awarded grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8000 - all raised from the 5p bag charge.
Bags of Help offers community groups and projects in each of Tesco’s 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 £8000 awards. Please vote for our project ‘Grow Well at Gartmorn’
Our aim is to help communities, organisations and individuals in Scotland become more sustainable and resilient. We provide engagement for all types of projects including community action plans, together with capacity building, fund raising support and feasibility studies for a wide range of issues.
Action for Change has worked in Partnership with Disability Awareness Group, Balfron Community Development Trust, Clackmannanshire Council, the Clackmannanshire Alliance, Clackmannanshire CVS, LEADER, Coalfields Regeneration Trust, Celebrating Fife 2010, Climate Challenge Fund, Scottish Natural Heritage and the Big Lottery to deliver a wide range of community engagement and action projects in Clackmannanshire, Stirlingshire and West Fife.
