Pupils at Holtspur School in Beaconsfield are aiming to create a beautiful outdoor area thanks to Tesco funding.

Clare Warnett, a member of the school’s PTA, applied for the funding to try and inspire younger generations for years to come.

The £2000 grant from Tesco’s Bags of Help scheme will enable the pupils to turn an unused and overgrown space into an area which can be used to grow a variety of plants and vegetables, will attract wildlife and make some “ground-breaking” art.

Clare said: “We are very grateful to Tesco for this money. Having had the new Learning Outside the Classroom building, we have now earmarked an area for a gardening-and-art space.

“We have a very active gardening club, as well as art clubs and lessons, and they need space to show their work, grow plants and learn new skills.”

The Tesco Bags of Help Scheme allows customers to vote, using the blue tokens given to them at the check-out, for their preferred local project.

The Holtspur School was awarded the grant after many customers at the Super-store in Loudwater voted for them.

Tom Nicholson, Tesco local communications manager, said: “Bags of Help enables our customers to vote for local schemes that are important to their community and it is good to see the real difference that the grants can make.”
