Re-launched Exmouth shop gives money away to school
CHILDREN from Beacon Primary were handed a donation of �200 for school funds from the manager of an Exmouth shop which has re-opened after changing its brand.
Lee Cole, store manager of the Co-operative, formerly Somerfield, in The Magnolia Centre, presented the donation.
Pupils from the school visited the shop last week to take part in a ribbon-cutting ceremony, to launch the new Co-op branch.
The Co-operative invested �230,000 for the refit. Mr Cole said it would bring a new era in food shopping to the local community and secure the existing 62 jobs.
Mr Cole, speaking about the visit of school pupils, said: “The Co-operative is very much a community retailer it is appropriate that our local school is involved in our special event.
