Tesco Charity Trust Community Awards
April 10, 2015
The Tesco Trust has announced that the next closing date for its Community Awards scheme is the 24th April 2014.
The Community Awards provides grants of between £500 and £2,500. The funding the Trust awards goes towards providing practical benefits, such as equipment and resources for projects that directly benefit health, sustainability or opportunities for young people in the local communities around Tesco stores in the UK.
The types of projects that can be supported include improving diets and encouraging healthy eating; involvement in sport and physical activity; education and training programmes; support to vulnerable and disengaged groups; and learning programmes for young people with disabilities. Due to the large volume of applications received, groups awarded a Community Award in the last three years can not apply. Previous projects supported include a grant of £2,000 to a school to purchase 2 mini pods to store 16 bikes/16 scooters; and a grant of £1,000 to a Community group to engage residents, including those with mobility issues, to experience gardening, grow their own food and to learn how to reduce waste and eat healthily.
