Janet McKinlay, headteacher at St Mary's said: "The store has been very supportive of the local community and not just schools during lockdown.

"This is a lovely gesture of support and goodwill on pupils' return at the start of the autumn term."

Darren Preston, store manager of Jack’s Middlewich, said: “Here at Jack’s we love helping the community.

"Schools have faced so much uncertainty this year so we wanted to show our support as they get back to normal. We hope the teachers and children enjoy the hamper and being back at school.”
