Little Weighton Primary School has expressed their thanks to Tesco customers for the support they were given.
The school were winners on the Tesco Incentive Bags of Help which saw them being awarded a £1,000 grant.

Acting School Head Teacher Julia Fielder said;
“The outdoor classroom has been a wonderful addition to enrich the outdoor environment.”
“With the support and kind donations from Tesco customers and the Friends of School the children have already enjoyed using the space for a school role-play wedding and as a focal point for our remembrance service.”
“Thank you for your generous donations, it is really appreciated by the Little Weighton Rowley School community.”
