New adventure playground one step closer for school after convenience store donation

PUPILS at St Thomas More Catholic Primary School are one step closer to completing their fundraising quest for a new adventure playground after accepting a �500 donation from a nearby convenience store last Friday morning.

Angela Williamson from the Nisa shop on Cromwell Road, Saffron Walden, was on hand to present a cheque as part of the store’s initiative of giving back to the community through funds raised by charging 5p for carrier bags.

The scheme has been running for two years and sees donations made to charities and schools.

Mary Jo Hall, headteacher at St Thomas More, said: “Nisa is trying to cut down the number of plastic bags used in the shop which fits in very well with the ethos at St Thomas More School where the children are working towards renewing their Eco Green Flag Status.”
