Shop­pers can help pupils hit store’s £1,000 jack­pot

Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

SHOP­PERS will raise money for schools through a scheme re­turn­ing to the Grosvenor Cen­tre.

Five schools will be in with the chance of win­ning £1,000 in the Shop for Schools ini­tia­tive. For ev­ery £10 spent at par­tic­i­pat­ing stores, shop­pers will be given to­kens that are then used to vote for their school of choice in the vot­ing box, lo­cated near Don Millers bak­ery.

The win­nings can be spent on any­thing for the school, from gym equip­ment and com­put­ers to train­ing cour­ses and new books.

Last year’s win­ners, Puss Bank Pri­mary School, spent their money on books for their li­brary.

Ed Kennedy, Grosvenor Cen­tre man­ager, said: “Shops for Schools is a re­ally im­por­tant part of the year for us as it en­ables us to give some­thing back to the young­sters in the Macclesfield com­mu­nity. We’ve had a great re­sponse from schools in the area and we know that our shop­pers will re­ally get in­volved to help their favourite.

“I’m de­lighted we’ve been able to raise the prize to­tal from £400 to £1,000 and I’m sure that this year is go­ing to prove more pop­u­lar than ever.”

The scheme will run from Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 1 to Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 31.
