Last week, Dan was delighted to visit the Tesco Metro in Kesgrave to congratulate some of our local schools on their success in collecting store vouchers for new equipment as part of the Tesco for Schools and Clubs scheme. The scheme gives schools and clubs a variety of useful items such a sports and computer equipment in exchange for vouchers earned with shopping bought at Tesco, and it was a real pleasure for Dan to speak with pupils and staff from Cedarwood Primary School in Kesgrave who told him that their vouchers will enable the school to purchase new items for the music department.

Dan would like to again pass on his congratulations to all of the staff and pupils at the schools that took part.
