A PERSHORE shop has been given an award for its fund-raising work.

Pershore Rotary Club presented its rotary service recognition award to the town’s branch of supermarket chain Co-op in Racecourse Road.

Judith Gath, president of the rotary club, handed the award to Kevin Pritchard, manager of the shop.

She said: “This is in recognition of the much-appreciated support the Co-op has given to our charitable endeavours and for the support you give more generally to charities within our local community.”

Mr Pritchard then gave a talk to members about the shop’s charitable work and its Green Schools Revolution project, which enables primary school children to visit farms and learn about where their food comes from.

He added: “I am really pleased to have received this award for myself and the store and I look forward to liaising further with the club in aiding the community.”
