Generous shoppers at Tesco in Banchory donated more than 17,000 Tesco school vouchers to three Deeside organisations earlier this year.

During the Tesco for Schools and Clubs promotions, shoppers who were not saving the vouchers for a specific school or club had the opportunity to donate their vouchers to Aboyne Academy, Dunecht Primary or Deeside Girls Football Club.

These three were drawn at random from all the schools and clubs in the area who had signed up for the scheme.

Aboyne received 7,309 vouchers, Dunecht 3,968 and Deeside Girls Football Club 5,989.

The schools and clubs have now received certificates recognising the number of vouchers they received and Dunecht has already been shopping and has bought sports and gardening equipment.

The voucher scheme will run again next year.
