During July and August local shoppers will be able to support the school at eight local Tesco branches.

People receive tokens at the till which they drop into boxes to vote for their preferred project: projects receive £4,000, £2,000 or £1,000 depending on how many votes they get.

Newbridge School has two campuses both near King George Hospital. The school has around 140 pupils aged 2-14 and 14-19, who have disabilities including Autistic Spectrum Disorder, Cerebral Palsy and severe sensory disorders, many pupils using wheelchairs.

Harvey Sharpe, who successfully applied to Tesco to take part in the scheme, has been part of the Parents and Friends Association for over 30 years - his own daughter attended the school from 1979-1992. Our picture shows Harvey with the minibus for which the school raised funds in 2012, when they were one the the charities for the Mayor's Appeal. 

The school plans to purchase much-needed specialist playground equipment with the money raised.

The Tesco branches taking part are Barkingside, Goodmayes, Ilford Cranbrook Road Express, Ilford Express, Ilford Ley Street Express, Wanstead Express, Woodford Green and Woodford Green Express.
