‘Wonderful surprise’ for schoolchildren as tuck shop profits go to good cause

Sweets, crisps and chocolate scoffed by workers at Redcar | Cleveland Ambassadors Sembcorp Energy UK have generated a healthy eating opportunity for a group of schoolchildren.

Youngsters at St Mary’s Primary in Grangetown will now be able to grow and eat their own vegetables and herbs in an outdoor ‘sensory garden’ that will be developed thanks to a £1,000 donation by the energy firm.

Hungry workers at the company, based on the Wilton International site, have been purchasing snacks from an on-site tuck shop for several years.

With profits from their unhealthy eating reaching a healthy total, two leading customers were invited to suggest a cause to benefit.

Energy trader Dean Grant and commercial account manager Jackie McQuire were both determined that the money should go to a local school to put towards a breakfast club or a healthy eating initiative.

St Mary’s headteacher Christine Ruddy said: “It was a wonderful surprise and something that will go a long way to helping us develop a sensory garden full of healthy eating options for the children.”
