THE final countdown for a Mail-backed scheme where schools can bag top equipment has begun.
People have just weeks left to support Shop for Schools, run by Middleton Grange Shopping Centre.
But supporters can take advantage of triple points on the forthcoming Bank Holiday Monday on August 25.
St Aidan’s Primary School continues to lead the way at the top of the table.
And the rest of the top five is unchanged from last week with Throston, Kingsley, Barnard Grove and St Helen’s heading the league table.
But there is still time to see your child or grandchild’s school move up the table as the scheme continues until the end of August.
It is easy to take part. Every pound you spend in any Middleton Grange store they are worth one Shop for Schools point.
Simply take your receipts to Middleton Grange’s information desk and you will be given points vouchers.
Then just post them through the box for the school or nursery you wish to support.
The more overall points a school racks up the greater the prizes they can claim at the end of the programme.
They include everything from high-tech digital cameras, televisions and computers to more traditional items like books and new sports kits.
Thousands of pounds worth of goods have been claimed since the scheme started several years ago.
This year, 24 town primary schools and two nurseries are taking part.
Schools’ points scores are calculated by dividing the number of points by the number of pupils they have so that no-one loses out.
