Sainsbury's (Crow Road)

We have had a stong partnership with Sainsbury's for many years.

February 2016: Staff from Sainsburys donated 'Mog' books to the school and did some store telling sessions in Primary 1.

Primary 4 visited the store to find out about Fair Trade products.

Sainsbury's staff donated a hamper for us to raffle at our Fair Trade Cafe. They gave all the children a goody bag!
