School farm club given cash boost
A SCHOOL run farm has been given a boost from a local supermarket.
Saffron Walden County High School Farm Club was presented with a cheque for �500 from Nisa Checkout Supermarket, in Cromwell Road, at its annual Easter open day.
Supermarket owner John Visana runs a ‘plastic bag’ scheme which raises money for alll local schools – notably for eco projects – by charging shoppers 5p for using plastic bags in his store.
The club’s Easter open day itself raised �300, cash which will go into the day-to-day running of the farm.
Children, parents and community members flocked to the farm to take part.
