Customers from the Norton Lane store picked White Cross Netball Club. As a result, they were named winners in the Bags of Help incentive for the months July and August.
Lead Coach and Secretary Rebecca Hutchinson expressed her thanks saying she was thrilled they had won.
‘”We are thrilled with the award of £1000.00 and it will make a huge difference to our club. We are continually fundraising. This is so our players to be able to participate, enjoy and thrive in netball,” Rebecca said. “The money will go a long way to helping fund kit and dresses for matches.”
“Thank you so much to the customers at Tesco who have supported us in this project. We could not have done it without them.”
