Thousand of Vouchers Donated For Allotment Scheme

A collective shopping bill of more than £25,000 means the CBA allotment will be bearing much fruit this Spring.

More than 2,700 Morrisons Let It Grow vouchers have been donated by staff, students and parents to the CBA allotment appeal.

As the supermarket scheme donated  one voucher per £10 spent in store, the overall spend came to an incredible £27,00 in just two months.

The vouchers will now be turned into items, such as seeds, compost and gardening equipment.

Science teacher Neil Price, who runs the CBA Gardening Club, said: "We have been really surprised at just how many vouchers have been donated and it will mean that we can now fully stock the allotment this Spring.

"Last year the produce helped to supply our restaurant and we will be hoping to do that again.

"We would like to say a huge thank you to all those who donated."

Mr Price has also secured 30 trees for the allotment which will be planted as a border around the allotment bed and act as a wind barrier.

The teacher would also like to thank his form 10Y who had the job of counting all the vouchers.
