Groundwork administers the Bags of Help scheme, which uses money raised by the sale of carrier bags to fund thousands of local projects in communities across the UK.
Projects range from improving community buildings and outdoor spaces to buying new equipment, training coaches or volunteers and hosting community events.
Groups based in Hertford, Letchworth Garden City, and Potters Bar, where applications are low, could be in with a chance of bagging £4000, £2000 or £1000 for their community project. Successful applications go to the public vote in Tesco stores to determine the size of grant awarded.
A previous grantee said: "This award has made a huge difference to us, it’s a great scheme and we are so grateful to Tesco and Groundwork for making it so straight forward for us to apply."
