Pupils from Cherbourg School in Eastleigh will be turning their fingers green this spring thanks to Asda Eastleigh.

Children from the school’s gardening club have been given a donation of equipment, seeds and everything else a budding gardener needs as part of the store’s Gro-Sure Challenge.  The challenge has been launched in partnership with Unwins Seeds with the aim of developing new skills among children when it comes to growing their own vegetables and plants.

This week the pupils came to the Bournemouth Road store along with their teacher, Andrew Crossley, to pick up the items and to meet store manager Patrick Singleton and Asda community colleague, Cecily Casey.

Cecily said:

“With the lovely weather we’re having, there couldn’t be a better time for children to be outside getting their hands dirty while also learning new skills.

“The children seemed very excited about the new equipment for their gardening club so I’m looking forward to see what produce they come out with.”

Teacher Andrew Crossley, added:

“Our gardening club is really popular with pupils.  We’re always in need of new equipment and seeds to help us keep up with our lessons and the donation from Asda goes a long way in helping us to do just that.”
