Staff from the Tesco Extra store in Bradley Stoke have joined local volunteers to spruce up a local church hall.

Dawn Richards, community champion at the Tesco store, and some of her colleagues were part of a team of eight people who spent a week in mid-August decorating the interior of St Chad’s Church Hall in Rodway Road, Patchway.

The hall is used by St Chad’s Pre-School during the day on weekdays and by various groups, including St John Ambulance Badgers, Rainbows, Brownies and dance groups, in the evenings and at weekends.

Members of the church community had already completed some of the work themselves but called in Dawn and her team to give them a helping hand. The work carried out included painting skirting boards, cupboards and walls.

The Tesco team will be returning to St Chad’s in the near future to help enhance some of the pre-school’s outdoor facilities, including the sand pit and ‘muddy play’ area.

Dawn and her team are always looking for new projects to get involved with. Anything which “helps the community” or is “for a good cause” will be considered.

Anyone wishing to suggest a suitable community project should write to Dawn Richards at Tesco Extra, Bradley Stoke BS32 8EF or email bradleystoke@eathappyproject.com

Young Halle clicks with Tesco and bags donation for school

A pupil at a Patchway school has bagged a big prize in an art competition organised by the Bradley Stoke Tesco Extra store to tell customers about its Click & Collect online grocery shopping service.

Halle Wardle, aged 10, who attends St Chad’s Primary School in Stoke Lodge, won £250 for the school plus a £25 Tesco gift card for herself.

But the best prize of all was seeing the winning artwork printed on 250 re-usable jute shopping bags which will now be distributed free to parents and children at the winning school.

Halle, accompanied by classmates, family and school staff, recently visited the Click & Collect unit at the Bradley Stoke store to pick up her gift card and the school’s prizes.

Schoolchildren had been asked by the tesco.com team to design an eye-catching picture to go alongside the Click & Collect design to promote the new service in which shoppers can order groceries online and arrange to pick them up at a collection point in the car park.

Halle’s entry was selected by judges for its colour, impact, sense of fun and style.

The Click & Collect service is already a big hit with busy customers who want their grocery shopping picked and packed but don’t have the time to wait at home for a delivery. The convenient service is a great shopping solution for busy mums and young professionals on their way home from work or anyone just returning from holiday.

Customers who would like help placing their first order can call Tesco’s dedicated UK based call centre for new customers on 0800 323 4040.
