Charities, community groups and non-profit organizations in Flintshire are encouraged to apply for funding from the Tesco Community Grant

Grants are an opportunity for charities and community groups to raise funds for good local causes.

Nationally, the program is administered by Groundwork and locally in North Wales by Groundwork North Wales.

It is open to community groups, non-profit groups and registered charities that need additional funding for the work they do to support their area.

Tesco Community Grants have funded thousands of local projects across the country. Since 2016, the program has supported over 40,000 organizations with over £90m in funding. The program aims to make a positive difference for local communities.

One of these causes is Ysgol Gymunedol Bodnant, which has transformed the school garden into a colorful space enjoyed by all.

The garden now includes a shed, raised vegetable beds, an orchard and soft fruit and sensory seating area with lots of herbs. All of this is surrounded by a border of spring and summer bulbs alongside a variety of climbing plants to provide summer color and food for pollinators.

Jessica Wragg, Tesco Enabler for Groundwork North Wales, said: “We would love to hear from more local registered charities and non-profits who would be interested in applying for a Tesco Community Grant for Great Work. that they accomplish”.

“We are particularly keen to encourage charities, groups and non-profits from the following areas to apply, Caernarfon in Gwynedd, Cefn Mawr in Wrexham, Mold in Flintshire, Newtown in Powys and Prestatyn in Denbighshire.”

“We’re here to help you through the application process, providing guidance and advice, so don’t hesitate to contact us as the grants are a great funding opportunity.”

Tesco Community Grants will select 3 good causes from apps that need a little extra help in the area and when a customer receives a blue token, at any Tesco store at checkout they can vote for their favorite among the three good causes selected to receive a grant by putting the blue token in the Tesco Community Grants box.

Organizations can contact Jessica at Groundwork North Wales for more information and an informal chat on 01978 757 524 or and [email protected]
