Woodmansey Primary School Able To Deliver Project Due To Tesco Funding
Mrs Nicholls thanked Tesco and their customers for picking the school, she said;
“I cannot thank the school’s wonderful PTFA enough who fundraise throughout the year and organised the Tesco bid.”
“Also I would like to thank the Tesco customers who chose our project to be worthy of £2000.”
“Small schools can sometimes struggle to raise larger amounts. With projects such as Tesco Bags of Help it means we can continue to raise the aspirations of developments within the school.”
Tesco is always looking for new projects to invest in. They are keen to hear from sports clubs, charities and community groups who need help to fund their project.
