Dropping in to Tesco for local schools

Steve Brine called into Tesco Winchester on Friday 21st October to see local schools receive fantastic new equipment thanks to the Tesco for Schools & Clubs Scheme.

The scheme, now in its 20th year, enables UK schools and clubs to redeem vouchers from Tesco purchases for all sorts of amazing products from iMacs to drum kits and garden tools to tennis rackets.

Over 40,000 schools and clubs in the UK have signed up to take part in the programme and last year alone, Tesco gave away over 430,000 pieces of equipment to schools and clubs, worth a staggering £9.3 million.

This year, shoppers in the local area received vouchers over ten weeks which they donated to a school or club of their choice. These schools and clubs were then able to choose what equipment they wanted from the catalogue to benefit and educate children.

Steve Brine said: "I was delighted to see primary schools from Kings Worthy and Stanmore here today, the second year running I have come along to this event.

Mark Carey, Store Manager at Tesco Winchester, said, "Tesco for Schools & Clubs is a scheme which my team are proud to be part of. Thousands of customers have been collecting vouchers to help their local schools and clubs get this new equipment showing what can happen when a whole community gets involved."
