A FLINTSHIRE school has been handed a sum of money from a nearby supermarket giant following a vote by shoppers.

Drury Primary School, in Buckley, received a cheque for £200 from ASDA Queensferry as part of its ‘Green Token Giving’ scheme.

The money is expected to be used to contribute towards developing the school's environmental areas, including to help towards the creation of a new butterfly garden.

Rachel O’Brien – the Community Champion for ASDA Queensferry - handed over the cheque to the school’s 'delighted' headteacher, Mr Mark Biltcliffe.

He said: "The money will be put to very good use in improving, still further, the outdoor areas with the ‘butterfly garden’ we are creating and environmental areas so that children can have places to sit and observe habitats."

ASDA shoppers are currently being given the chance to vote for the good cause they would prefer money to be donated to until June 30, 2019.

At the Queensferry superstore, visitors can use the green token they receive at the checkout to vote for one of three charitable organisations.

The votes are currently being distributed between Sandycroft Community Centre, the care service NEWCIS, and the Domestic Abuse Safety Unit.

Each year, the ASDA Foundation invests over £1.4 million into thousands of local good causes through their ‘Green Token Giving’ programme, which is funded by an annual donation from ASDA, as well as with some profits from the midweek National Lottery.
