Sports clubs are going from strength to strength at Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School in Horncastle - thanks to a little help from Tesco customers.

Last year, the Adult Education set-up was awarded a grant by Tesco as part of their ‘Bags of Help project’ funded by Tesco’s five pence bag levy.

Since receiving funds, QEGS have purchased equipment for football, boxing, badminton and rounders.

A spokeswoman said: “In addition to our school activities, we are delighted to open our doors to the community every weekday evening and some weekends through adult education, clubs and lettings.”
