Walney Tesco to open with cash donations to schools

A NEW supermarket is to celebrate its opening with a double donation to two Furness schools.

Representatives from South Walney Junior School and South Walney Infant and Nursery School have been invited to receive a donation when the new Tesco Express store opens in Ocean Road, Walney, on Thursday. 

Store manager John Fearn and his team will present South Walney Junior School with a cheque for £500 as part of its commitment to supporting the local community.

Dave Guy, a contractor from Vale UK, will also present a cheque for £500 to South Walney Infant and Nursery School on behalf of Tesco Property Services. 

Mr Fearn said: “We are delighted to be able to support the local schools and are really pleased that they are coming to launch the new store and join in the celebrations with us.

"My team and I are looking forward to welcoming our customers into the new store and we hope that Tesco will become a key part of the local community.”

Have your say

Having lived most of my life on walney and having worked as a Road Safety Officer, I can only express my disgust that Barrow Council allowed the opening of a Tesco Express on an extremley busy road junction, opposite two schools. No matter how much money Tesco and the Contractors donate this will not help those children who are hurt or killed due to the increase in vehicle activity.
