Beverley Manor Nursery School said: ‘’We are delighted here at Beverley Manor Nursery School to have won the Tesco Community Grant of £1500 to contribute towards food for our eco and ethical pantry. The school are starting up an Eco and Ethical pantry to support families and to reduce food waste locally. For a small joining fee families will be able to come to the pantry and buy a number of items of food at a nominal charge. Thank you again for all your support towards the school.’’
Bethan Nicholls, Head Teacher at Woodmansey Primary School, said: ‘‘The pupils and staff at Woodmansey CE Primary School would like to thank Tesco and all their customers for voting in store for our project. We are only just uncovering the pandemic's impact on our young children. Our youngest children, aged 3 and 4 have had such significant disruption to opportunities for communication, developing their play and social skills. Using the £500 from Tesco we will be able to enhance our provision to offer resources aimed at collaborative play outside, in turn promoting positive well-being. We cannot thank you enough!’’
