Funding for local environment projects (UK)
Schools and local community groups can apply for funding of up to £2,000 for projects that improve the local physical environment and also benefit the wider community.
The Greggs Foundation Environmental Grant Scheme is funded by the 5p levy on carrier bag sales in Greggs shops.
The type of activities that could be funded include for example a growing project in a local primary school; volunteers who completed litter picking exercises in their local parks or along a local riverbank; an allotment project for people suffering early stages of dementia; and clearing an area of wasteland in an area of high social need to create a community garden; etc. Local organisations based near Greggs shops are given priority.
Round 2 is now open and will close at midnight on 22nd June 2018.
