Retailers have backed a scheme which rewards mid-Derbyshire pupils for their supreme efforts at school.

A representative from the Nisa Local Store on High Street, South Normanton, has presented a cheque for £500 to the village’s Frederick Gent School’s PTA.

The money will go to the school’s rewards days, when students who have made an outstanding contribution to various aspects of their school life are given time off to experience other activities.

Workers at the store were able to raise money for the school through the sale of specific productions with the help of the Making a Difference Locally (MADL) charity.

The independent registered charity has an intention of assisting more than 2,000 independent retailers supplied by Nisa throughout the UK raise money for their local communities.

Syd Coupland, the Nisa Local Partner, said: “Frederick Gent is local to our store and they contribute significantly to the local community and we are delighted to support the school and the students with the money that is raised through MADL.”
