Tesco Express has since made a donation to the community centre to help it replenish some of the items. Earlier this week members from the centre and local police officers visited the Tesco store to give their thanks.

Andy Thomas, area manager at Tesco, said: “We’re really pleased to be able to help the community centre and hope our donation helps them get ready again for the festive season.”
