Bag charges to be used to fund community project

Sat, 24 Sep 2016


A Manx community project will benefit from a scheme to use funds raised by charging for plastic carrier bags.

Three schemes in each area served by a Tesco store in the British Isles have been shortlisted for the Bags of Help initiative.

The Manx Wildlife Trust and Laxey and Lonan Heritage Trust are both in the running for the Isle of Man.

Grants worth between £8,000 and £12,000 will be awarded to the project that receives the most votes.

Customers will be given a token to vote for the organisation they think most deserves the cash in the coming weeks.
