Getting by with a little help from our friends...

To mark the anniversary of their first year of trading, Karthik Marimutha and the team at Londis convenience store have decided to show their appreciation for being so warmly received by the villagers by making a generous donation to the local primary school – Chelford CE Primary.

Pupils Annie and Alice joined headteacher Andy Brady on a recent visit to the store to receive a donation of £500, which will help to enhance provisions at the school over the coming months.

Mr Brady was thrilled to receive the donation, "Since taking up the headship at Chelford, I have been amazed by the support that we have received from the local community. We were delighted when Karthik made contact to offer his assistance, which will enable us to continue to provide the very best experiences for our pupils."

The School has also been busy arranging charitable donations to help support the essential work of the Silklife Foodbank Centre in Macclesfield. A generous collection of foods and other items was arranged and donated to the Centre which aims to support the most vulnerable families in our community.

Andy was proud of the response, "As always, we aim to instil a sense of charity and kindness in our pupils, and once again, our families have gone above and beyond in ensuring that those in our communities who need help are supported. It was incredibly humbling to see the hard work of the volunteers in action and we are thrilled to be able to offer our support."
