Community organisations helping make life better for people in Oban and Lochaber joined MSPs, Tesco staff and representatives from greenspace scotland at an event at the Scottish Parliament last week.

The gathering was organised to mark the success of the supermarket’s community grant scheme, Bags of Help, which sees money raised from the sale of carrier bags awarded to community projects.

To mark the success of the project so far, Tesco and greenspace scotland invited representatives from almost 40 groups to Holyrood.

Hope 2 Oban and Lochaber Camanachd Club Ladies were part of the celebration.

In Scotland, more than 2,000 groups have shared £6 million.

Bags of Help funding is available to community groups and charities looking to fund local projects that bring benefits to communities. Anyone can nominate a project and organisations can apply online. To find out more visit www.tesco.com/bagsofhelp.
