Helping Market Rasen Primary School splash out on a new pool roof is the town’s Tesco supermarket.
Jenny Stimson is its ‘community champion’ and her role is to help good causes in the area.
The store regularly stages events for charity, raising £12,000 in the past year, says store manager Ian Black.
Events often include raffles, or even have Jenny digging gardens or reading to old people in a nursing home.
School deputy head Nichola Allerston said this latest donation “will help push us” towards the £70,000 it needs for a new pool roof. “We are nearly there now,” she said.
This week, the school stages a sponsored swim.
