The Isle of Rum Regeneration Project

Tesco has teamed up with Greenspace Scotland to launch its Bags of Help initiative in Scotland. The scheme will see three community groups and projects in each of these regions awarded grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 – 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 £8,000 awards.

For more details of the scheme, follow this link: www.tesco.com/bagsofhelp

We are proud to announce that our Isle of Rum Regeneration Project is one of the community group projects picked for this region’s scheme
