Kids get fit with store

CUSTOMERS at a Ponteland supermarket have the chance to help local children benefit from a more active and healthier lifestyle.

The voucher collection process for this year’s Active Kids campaign is running until April 10.

Under the Sainsbury’s scheme, shoppers at the Ponteland branch can choose to donate their vouchers to registered nurseries, schools, scout and guide groups and sports clubs. They will use them to ‘purchase’ equipment and fun experiences.

Last year’s campaign saw more than 6,000 new organisations signing up to the scheme.
