Stephen Mosley MP presented local school children with new equipment, kindly donated by Tesco, at the Tesco HomePlus store on Sealand Road.
Stephen met with store manager, Karl Koltuniak, and local school children to hear what they would do with their new equipment, and what they wanted to do with Tesco’s Kids United money they are competing for.
Commenting on the presentation, Stephen said:
“It was great to be able to hear first-hand what the children want to get at their schools, and to hear how the Chester store is helping our local community. I would encourage shoppers at the store to take part in the brand new ‘Kids United’ programme, and vote for what local school project they would like Tesco to support”
The Chester store is also one of the first in the country to introduce its ‘Kids United’ programme, where shoppers can vote for which school projects in Chester they would like Tesco to support. The HomePlus store has £4000 worth of play equipment to give away to local childrens’ projects over the next month. The money will be shared between the three selected school projects, with the winner receiving £2500.
