THEY say that ‘every little helps’, and that was certainly the case last week for the Link Playgroup after Tesco helped the new group open their doors in style.

The new children’s group was recently set up and Tesco Community Champion, Emma MacKenzie gave the children a dream start by donating toys, stuffed animals and games on behalf of the company.

Emma said: “If any community group require help then it’s my job to see if Tesco can give them a hand.

“It’s good to get in touch with the local community and it’s quite satisfying to be able to help people. The children were loving the toys and one child was even crying near the end because they didn’t want to leave, they were having such a good time!

“We donated lots of toys, stuffed animals, balls for a ball pit, toy cars and a tunnel and we were happy to help.”
