Paul Bunyan, store manager and Claire Hobson, community champion at the store located at the Holmbush Centre, on Upper Shoreham Road, visited staff and pupils at Holmbush Primary Academy and presented them with their £1,000 donation.

Head teacher Rebecca Jackson said: “We are delighted that Tesco has chosen to support our school. We are currently undertaking an exciting project to turn a double decker bus into art classrooms and this donation will go a long way to make this happen.”

Store colleagues will be returning to the school with tools and paintbrushes in hand to help ‘do up’ the bus and get it ready for art classes in time for the new school year.

Store manager Paul said: “We are very keen to support our local community which is why we were thrilled to be able to help Holmbush Primary Academy with their project.

“It was lovely to meet Rebecca and her pupils at the school and we are looking forward to returning to get stuck in and help to create some new art classrooms.”

Rebecca added: “We would like to thank the team at Tesco for all of their support and are looking forward to working with them on this project.

The Tesco Extra store at the Holmbush Centre is open from midnight on Monday to 10pm on Saturday and from 10am to 4pm Sundays.
