THE Tesco Extra on Prince Avenue in Southend has donated £500 and £500 worth of Tesco gift cards to the Neptune Ward at Southend Hospital, as well as providing a DIY task force to help with interior refurbishments of their parent’s room.

A team of volunteers from the Tesco Extra will go along to the Neptune Ward to help update and rejuvenate the parent’s room, which is used by the parents of the children who are being treated at Southend’s hospital. The team popped down to the hospital to present Elise Fleetwood from the hospital with a £500 cheque and £500 worth of Tesco gift cards.
