School Aid receives an award of £1,100 from Tesco Bags of Help

Last year School Aid was successful in its bid to take part in Tesco’s Bags of Help programme.  During November, shoppers at Gerrards Cross and Chalfont Express stores were invited to select one of 3 local charities using tokens they had received with their shopping.

The results are now in, and we are delighted to report that our supporters have once again risen to the challenge and enabled us to win a grant of £1,100.
