Killean PS Winners of the first prize of £1000

Principal and P3s from Killean PS receive the Winning Cheque of £1000 from Kelly McKeown, Mulkerns Eurospar / Spar

Local Primary Schools in Killean, Meigh, Dromintee, Jonesborough and Cloughogue recently benefitted from a Cash for Schools Initiative run by Mulkerns SPAR & EUROSPAR.  To take part customers were issued with a voucher at the tills, which they then used to vote for their school in special voting boxes located in store.  The prize system was tiered, and every school was a winner, with each receiving a fantastic Cash Prize!

Killean Primary School came out on top with the most votes winning a whopping £1000 for their school.  St Joseph’s Meigh came in second place winning £500 cash.  Three £250 cash prizes also went to Dromintee PS, St Moninna’s PS, Cloughogue and Jonesborough P.S.

General Manager at Mulkerns Kelly McKeown awarded each school principal with their prizes on their first day back after half term.

Kelly commented “The Directors and Management Team at Mulkerns wanted to do something to help the schools, who are working so hard to keep going in a very uncertain environment…with no increase in their budget.  I am humbled to be presenting them with these much-needed funds”.

Each of the schools had their own plans for the money, Dromintee had held a draw asking their children which books they would like to buy, some of the books have already arrived and some of the P5’s are proudly displaying them in the photograph.

A big thank you to all the parents who shopped and voted!  Look out for lots more Community Campaigns in store.
