Thousands of pounds have been given to improve reading facilities at a Clevedon primary school.
Mary Elton Primary School in Holland Road has received £4,000 from the Tesco Bags Of Help scheme.
Tesco customers used tokens received at the checkout to vote for the school and earn it the highest possible amount.
The money will be used to create an outdoor space which children can read in.
Headteacher Dean Hudd said: “This is tremendous news for our pupils.
