Retailers in Wales are required to charge customers 5p for a single-use carrier bag. ASDA has decided to use this money to support good causes that benefit the local community in areas where its stores are located.
Not-for-profit organisations can apply for grants of up to £2,000 for projects in the following areas:
- Children and young people.
- Older people.
- Community cohesion.
The grants can help meet a wide range of costs for community groups, including equipment, materials and local community activities and events.
The deadline for applications is 30 September 2015.
