Proud mum Tanya said: “Flynn helped to pen a letter to Tesco to let them know the plans, while Isla added artwork to it.

“We got a call from Selina at Tesco a few days later. We couldn’t believe how generous they were.

“They supplied a new coffee machine and DAB radio, among other items. I am so proud of the kids and Selina for helping.”
