Lockerbie Old School bags £1,500 from Tesco’s community grant scheme!
LOS took part in the above scheme back at the start of the year and had a great response from the locals – so much so that we came first in the vote and will now receive £1,500 that will help to run fun events for the local community over the next 12 months!
For small projects like us, grants like this allow us to help more people and make a bigger difference in our community.
Claire de Silva, Tesco’s Head of Community, said: “Tesco Community Grants help support local good causes like Lockerbie Old School and especially those projects supporting young people, those providing food, and local causes close to our colleagues’ hearts.”
Tesco Community Grants is run in partnership with Greenspace Scotland and community charity Groundwork, who has awarded grants to thousands of local community projects every year. Tesco’s Community Grants scheme – previously Tesco Bags of Help - has already provided over £100 million to more than 50,000 projects across Britain.
Emma Halliday, Community Enabler at greenspace scotland, said: “Tesco Community Grants continues to give local projects the boost they need to help their communities thrive. We are pleased to have been able to help so many local good causes over the years and look forward to seeing what community organisations can achieve in the future with the right resources.”
Funding is available to community groups and charities looking to fund local projects that bring benefits to communities. To find out more visit www.tesco.com/communitygrants.
