Mitchell’s Miracles, Avelon and Queen’s Hospital in Rom Valley Way received £1,500 from the Tesco in Airfield Way on Wednesday, January 30.

Brenda Orton, 55, front end manager at the store, told the Recorder: “It was a lovely day. We chose [the charities] because they’re local and the project is funded by our local customers.

“Customers bring in books they’ve used and we put them on the back of our check-outs.

“Then after they’ve done their shopping they can take the books they want to read and make a small donation to our charities.”
