Thanking Asda for their generosity, headteacher Sue Beckett said: “They will really make a difference to our children's learning as some of our laptops are now getting a bit slow.”

Recently the primary school, on Tapton View Road, also received a donation of items for its new Breakfast and After School Clubs after being chosen by the Community Team based at the Tesco Extra in Chesterfield.

Ms Beckett added: “They brought a whole array of breakfast and snack goodies. It was a lovely surprise, totally out of the blue, and the children were delighted to receive such a kind donation.”
