We have applied for a Grant from the Tesco Bags of Help Scheme, to enable us to put into place our plans for our ‘Secret Garden’. The amount of money we receive depends on a customer voting system that is in place at the Galashiels Branch of Tesco. Each time you shop at Tesco you should receive a blue token. You then place this token in a clear Perspex box at the front of the store (near the travellator), that is labelled Ednam Primary School. We are competing against 2 other organisations, the group with the most tokens will receive £4,000; second place £2,000 and third £1,000. I managed to get 6 tokens this week by saying that we are a small school trying to raise money!! You can collect these tokens at any Tesco store; please bring them into school and we will take them to Tesco in Galashiels. This competition is on for the months of September and October. Please spread the word and collect as many tokens as possible so that we win the £4,000!!
