Tesco Bags of Help award – Making the Muir of Ord Stand Out

We are delighted to announce that our project has been shortlisted for a public vote in Tesco’s Bags of Help initiative!

Please read about our project and vote for us to win the top prize in store!

We applied for funding under the title ‘Making the Muir of Ord Stand Out’ to create a vibrant welcome and identity at each of the access points in and out of the village through signage, planning and landscaping; and a noticeboard and signage at the front of the Hall with new picket line fencing and signage, new fencing, a gate and landscaping at the back of the Village Hall.

Tesco has teamed up with Groundwork on its Bags of Help initiative across Scotland.  The scheme will see three community groups and projects awarded grants of £12,000, £10,000, £8,000 – all raised from the 5p bag charge.  Greenspace Scotland are working with Groundwork to support Scottish communities.

Bags of Help offers community groups and projects in each of Tesco’s regions across the UK a share of revenue generated from the 5p charge levied on single-use carrier bags.

The public will now vote in store from 26 September to 9 October on who should receive the £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 awards.  In total, there is over £12.5 million to spend.
