SHOP FOR SCHOOLS CAMPAIGN AT MIDDLETON GRANGE CENTRE.
We have signed up to the Shop for Schools campaign offered by Middleton Grange Shopping Centre between now and the 31st December 2016. Every £1 spent in Middleton Grange is worth one point and in January 2017 our points will be totalled up, and depending on how many we have, we can choose free books, sports equipment etc. This works by taking any receipts to the Customer Service Desk in the shopping centre and they will assign the points to our school account.
