Tesco Express, based on Dragonfly Lane, recently donated £500 to Cringleford CE VA Primary School, to the south of Norwich.

Ross Ashton, chair of governors at the school, was the guest of honour when the new store opened its doors for the first time and he was invited to cut a ribbon and declare it officially open.

Mr Neil Henery, head teacher, said: “I would like to thank Tesco for this generous donation.

“The money will support much needed maths equipment, some money will be allocated to the school council so they can decide what else the school really needs.”

Store manager Richard Lawrence, and his team, presented Mr Ashton with the cheque for £500 during the special event.

Mr Lawrence said: “We have really enjoyed our store launch celebrations and I would like to thank Ross for joining us. We are delighted to support the Cringleford CE VA Primary School with our £500 donation as they are a great school which provides an invaluable education to children in the area.

“My colleagues and I want to make this a local store for local people and aim to give our customers fantastic service.”

The store chose to donate to the primary school as part of a commitment to support the local community.

Cringleford CE VA Primary School works with over 300 children in the local area to provide education to four to 11 year olds.

The school provides opportunities, activities and run a variety of projects that helps their understanding of their local environment and the world around them.

In June 2013, pupils and staff moved into a brand new school building, which currently has 363 children on its roll.
