Local MP Jack Lopresti made an appearance at the Tesco Extra store in Bradley Stoke last week to witness a special presentation to children from three local schools, marking the success of the supermarket group’s Vouchers for Schools & Clubs scheme.
Two pupils and a member of staff from each of Bowsland Green Primary School, Wheatfield Primary School and Bradley Stoke Community School were present to receive some of the equipment earmarked for their schools from the scheme and to be presented with a goody bag for themselves courtesy of Tesco.
In Filton and Bradley Stoke, 78 schools and clubs collected 726,945 Tesco vouchers last year and ordered equipment worth £21,206.
Mr Lopresti said:
“I was delighted to hear about the good things the scheme has achieved in the last year.”
“Parents and carers have made a great effort to collect so many vouchers and I hope they benefit from the equipment and resources they have been able to order as a result.”
“I would also like to thank Tesco for their efforts in putting together the scheme and in inviting me to the presentation today.”
Sam Lea-Tanner, the store’s Customer Service Manager, and Store Manager Pete Ballam met the children and staff and talked for a few minutes about the community work that Tesco do.
