THE Ponteland Under Fives Playgroup has received a funding boost from a local supermarket.

Sainsbury’s Ponteland has presented it with a cheque for £100 to help towards the cost of a colourful canopy.

Store Manager Jason Harmer said: “Our store is at the heart of the local community and it is important that we can do as much as we can to support it.

“When we heard about Ponteland Under Fives Playgroup we were really pleased to be able to help out.”

The Sainsbury’s Community Grant scheme is funded by sales of Bags for Life.
