PUPILS at Upton Leonard’s Primary School were fully fuelled up for their exams thanks to a Tesco food donation.

Year six pupils were handed 15 boxes of multigrain cereal, 12 litres of orange juice, 25 loafs of bread, tubs of margarine, boxes of fruit and pints of milk, for their breakfast club by Tesco in Brockworth.

Headteacher Cottia Howard said: “Tesco provided us with the provisions so staff could make breakfasts for the children before they did their SATs exams. The children have been really resilient to the exams last week. We think breakfast are essential for children. The club allows them to relax and chat with their friends, We also allow pupils get some fresh air before the day starts.”

This morning manager Mark Williams from the Tesco store handed out the last of the meals to the breakfast club.

Laura Pittaway, Tesco community champion from the Brockworth store, said: “Some children do not always have breakfasts in the morning for one reason or another and this is a positive way to encourage this. We provided breakfasts for SATs week which was from Monday to Thursday.”

    Nice to see Tesco not looking for cheap publicity by handing out food parcels in deprived areas. Said no one. Ever.
