LOCAL schools stand to benefit from a significant donation of IT and sports equipment thanks to Tesco Ellon.

Pupils representing Meiklemill and Auchterellon Primaries were joined by Gordon MP Malcolm Bruce for the handover of the equipment, which took place on Friday morning at the superstore. Other schools benefitting from the donations include Ellon Academy and Ellon Primary School.

The scheme - Tesco for Schools and Clubs - sees Tesco distribute IT and sports equipment to local schools as part of the store’s community engagement policy, through donations of vouchers collected in Tesco stores.

Spokeswoman Claire Comery said: “It’s a scheme which has brought a lot of good to schools in the area. The company does a lot of good work in the community.”
