SHOPPERS at a Worcester Tesco store helped give £5,000 to Nunnery Wood Primary School.
100 large Tesco stores took part in a lucky dip to find specially-created gold versions of its blue voting token.
The prize was worth £500,000 in grants to local good causes nationwide.
Customers finding a golden token could choose a local school or community project to benefit from a £5,000 cash boost.
Nunnery Wood Primary School was one of three charities and school projects customers could vote for at its High Street express store.
The school’s Forest School and workshop project was chosen as the winner.
Funding will help build a wooden shelter which can be used during sessions in the great outdoors.
The shelter will be a tool area where children can learn new skills while ensuring equipment is kept safe and dry.
With many small, often volunteer-run groups facing rising costs, Stronger Starts grants are vital at the moment.
