Tesco Bags of Help

North Kelvin Sports Development Group calls out for votes to bag a share of Tesco’s bag fund!

North Kelvin Sports are bidding to bag a massive cash boost from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative.

Tesco teamed up with Groundwork to launch its community funding scheme, which sees grants of £4,000, £2,000 and £1,000 raised from carrier bag sales in Tesco stores awarded to local community projects. greenspace scotland is working with Groundwork to provide support to communities in Scotland.

Three groups in every Tesco region have been shortlisted to receive the cash award and shoppers are being invited to head along to Tesco stores to vote for who they think should take away the top grant.

North Kelvin Sports are one of the groups on the shortlist.

North Kelvin Sports are requesting funding support to provide club members with additional equipment, training kit, team uniforms and match day strips without the cost being passed on to club members. The club do not believe that the young people should be priced out of playing football, nor should they miss out on the additional extras that help to build team spirit, develop camaraderie and create a sense of belonging.  Funding support for clubs like ours IS essential due to the rising costs of grassroots community football in Scotland.

Voting is open in all Tesco stores in July until August. Customers will cast their vote using a token given to them at the check-out in store each time they shop.

Tesco’s Bags of Help project has already delivered over £52 million to more than 16,000 projects up and down the UK. Tesco customers get the chance to vote for three different groups every time they shop. Every other month, when votes are collected, three groups in each of Tesco’s regions will be awarded funding.

Tony McElroy, Tesco’s Head of Communications in Scotland, said:

“Bags of Help has been a fantastic success and we’ve been overwhelmed by the response from customers. It’s such a special scheme because it’s local people who decide how the money will be spent in their community. There are some fantastic projects on the shortlists and we can’t wait to see these come to life in hundreds of communities.”

Emma Halliday, Community Enabler Coordinator at greenspace scotland, said:

“Bags of Help continues to enable local communities up and down the UK to improve the local spaces and places that matter to them. The diversity of projects that are being funded shows that local communities have a passion to create something great in their area. We are pleased to be able to be a part of the journey and provide support and encouragement to help local communities thrive.”

Funding is available to community groups and charities looking to fund local projects that bring benefits to communities. Anyone can nominate a project and organisations can apply online. To find out more visit: www.tesco.com/bagsofhelp

  • The Bags of Help initiative is supported by money raised from carrier bag sales in Tesco stores.

What we are currently doing

In partnership with Active Schools we are expanding delivery of our Bridges & Barriers After School workshops and sport sessions city-wide aiming to increase footprint in Glasgow as well as welcoming back previous school partnerships. We are also targeting isolated schools so they do not miss out on the opportunity.

We are also complimenting curricular work already delivered by schools and Sense Over Sectarianism by introducing educational resource activities from the novel Divided City to the current workshop format. 

In 2018-2019 we are going to be working In partnership with a council and Active Schools out-with Glasgow City Council to deliver a B&B pilot after-school block of workshops and sport sessions. In addition, we are aiming to work In partnership with a large community football organisation and Active Schools out-with Scotland's 'Central Belt' to deliver a B&B pilot after-school block of workshops and sport sessions. We will complete our project by hosting our annual B&B city-wide Anti-Sectarianism Primary School Football Festival.
