Tesco voucher scheme provides local schools with equipment worth £8,000
Since 1992 Tesco, through the voucher collection promotions, has provided UK schools with access to around 4 million free pieces of equipment worth £170 million. Last year, 36 schools and clubs in Makerfield collected a total of 230,542 vouchers, with 31 of them ordering equipment worth £8420.
I enjoyed meeting staff and pupils from local schools and hearing what they have been able to do with the vouchers they have collected.
Staff at Tesco Hindley are to be commended for their support. It is a worthwhile scheme and it has been going a long time bringing significant benefits to many local schools.
