Tomorrow (Friday) is the last day that organisations which help improve green spaces in the island can apply to receive funding of up to £12,000.

The Bags of Help grant scheme, managed by charity Groundwork and funded by Tesco, uses money raised from the 5p charge for plastic bags in the UK to help fund projects.

The Isle of Man does not have a plastic bag charge but benefits from the scheme as it is part of the Tesco UK programme.

Examples of projects likely to be successful include community gardens, woodland walks and outdoor recreation facilities.

Three shortlisted applications will go forward to an in-store vote where Tesco customers will decide who will receive grants of either £12,000, £10,000 or £8,000.

The deadline for applications is at midday tomorrow.
