A RALLYING call has gone out to Bromsgrove Standard readers to help Fairfield First School be in with a chance of winning up to £12,000 for its sensory garden project.

The school has already won £8,000 for its proposal, which it submitted to the Bags of Help competition launched by Tesco and Groundwork just before Christmas.

Now the school needs as many votes as possible to stand a chance of winning one of the two top prizes.

And readers will have to be quick as voting closes on Monday.

To vote for Fairfield, residents can visit their local Tesco branch where they will be given a token to put into one of three boxes.

The Sensory Garden will involve developing the school’s pond area into a more interactive and accessible learning environment.

As well as learning sessions, it will also provide the children with additional space to explore away from the busy playground.

Funds for the awards were raised by the the 5p charge made to Tesco customers for plastic carrier bags.
