Following a vote by customers in Tesco stores throughout the UK, in July / August and November / December 2019, the project that receives the most votes in the voting region will receive a grant:

First place – Up to £25,000.

Second place – Up to £15,000.

Third place – Up to £10,000.

Please note: groups are encouraged to apply for the top amount of funding £25,000 with a scaled down budget in case they are awarded one of the lower amounts (£15,000 or £10,000). Groups will only be awarded the amount they apply for even if they come first in the voting.

There are 23 regions (https://gwkgis.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=0a5312ffe2a24ddaa42b36239fbb7779) across England.
