Staff from Pocklington’s Sainsbury’s store paid a visit to the town’s infant school to check out the equipment the school has received as part of a voucher scheme.

Pocklington Infant School collected about £300 worth of Active Kids vouchers which they have used to buy items such as bats and balls, kitchen equipment, nets, magnifying glasses and wigwams. Active Kids is a scheme run by Sainsbury’s and involves schools and groups collecting vouchers for activity and cooking equipment, plus coaching and experiences for kids. Melina Healy, from Pocklington’s Sainsbury’s, said: “Many thanks to all our customers for donating the vouchers and thanks to all the children who handed them into their school. It really does show how worthwhile it is collecting these vouchers.”
