Denton and Reddish MP Andrew Gwynne has joined children from local schools to accept equipment provided by the Tesco for Schools and Clubs scheme.
Last year, 45 schools and clubs in Denton and Reddish collected a total of 258,568 vouchers, with 38 of them ordering equipment worth £7,918. Since Computers for Schools was launched in 1992, Tesco claims to have provided over 45,000 schools and clubs with more than £185 million of essential equipment.
The pupils, from Denton’s Manor Green Primary School and St John Fisher Primary School, accepted the equipment at Crownpoint Shopping Park.
Andrew Gwynne MP said:
“Tesco now has twenty one years of history of supporting schools and clubs in Denton and Reddish, and I would like to thank them for their responsibility and generosity over the last two decades. Many children have benefitted from the equipment provided by Tesco, and last year six schools and over one and a half thousand children in Denton and Reddish took part in their own Tesco Great School Run.
“I would also like to thank the parents and other residents who have supported this campaign so much, particularly those who work tirelessly to support their children by taking them to sports and activity clubs at all hours. I know from experience how much work it takes.”
