Tesco to­ken ap­peal

Rutherglen Reformer - - Intimations - Lynne Cin­tron

Green-fin­gered pupils at Calder­wood Pri­mary need your votes to help them bag a share of Tesco cash to help their school gar­den grow and ev­ery lit­tle helps.

As part of the Tesco Bags of Help ini­tia­tive, lo­cal shop­pers will be able to show their sup­port for the young­sters in their bid to make their com­mu­nity out­door class­room bloom­ing marvel­lous by vot­ing for their project in-store.

And they could help them bag a grant of £4,000, £2,000 or £1,000

Three groups in ev­ery Tesco re­gion are short­listed to re­ceive cash and Calder­wood Pri­mary is one of them to be picked for the lat­est round of fund­ing.

Now lo­cal shop­pers at the Tescos in Ruther­glen and Burn­side, as well as stores in Shet­tle­ston, Baille­ston and Park­head, are be­ing in­vited to vote for their favourite project.

All shop­pers need to do is make a pur­chase and they will re­ceive a to­ken.

As they leave the store, there is a vot­ing zone at the exit where they can pop their to­ken in the box of their cho­sen project.

Calder­wood Pri­mary would put any money re­ceived to­wards the out­door per­for­mance area in their gar­den, in par­tic­u­lar to buy gi­ant out­door in­stru­ments in­clud­ing a tur­tle drum, rain­bow sam­bas and Akakinda, as well as more wil­low struc­tures and benches.

Jayne Swan­son, chair­per­son of the par­ent coun­cil, urged shop­pers to get be­hind the project and said: “These are lo­cal chil­dren work­ing so very hard on a fan­tas­tic project to make their school a greener and brighter place to learn.

“They would re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate your help and I hope that ev­ery time you pop into Tesco, you pop a lit­tle to­ken in the Calder­wood Pri­mary box.”

The vot­ing is up and run­ning in store now and will end on Fri­day, June 30.
