CHILDREN from four Sudbury schools are the lucky recipients of new computer and music and art equipment thanks to their parents and friends.

The schools were selected because they collected the most shopping vouchers out of all the schools in the town.

The scheme was run by Tesco in Springlands Way as part of a national vouchers for equipment initiative.

Michelle King, HR manager from the store said: “The schools which collected the most vouchers were Woodhall Primary, St Joseph’s Primary, Pot Kiln Primary and Acton Primary schools.

“They were able to pick out whatever new equipment they wanted, including printers and screens. I think a lot of mums and dads, and aunts and uncles, helped them along the way.”

At Woodhall Primary, they bagged musical recorders, sketch books and toys after amassing more than 30,000 of the store’s vouchers.

Relatives and friends at Acton Primary collected more than 20,000 vouchers to get computer and art equipment.

“We have done it every year and have got thousands of pounds worth of goods for the school including a very nice xylophone and some PE equipment in past years.

“It’s a very good scheme for us,” said teacher Jackie Goodwin.
