A SUPERMARKET has stepped in to help replace scooters that were destroyed in a fire at a primary school.

Sainsbury’s supermarket in Broadcut, Fareham, has agreed to replace two of the bikes destroyed in a fire started by arsonists during the summer break.

The fire destroyed a shed containing toys at Woodcot Primary School in Tukes Lane, Bridgemary in August.

Community ambassador for Sainsbury’s supermarket Linda Langdon said: ‘We are also going to look into how we can help with any further fundraising to help replace some more of the equipment and toys. Unfortunately the bikes and scooters they need are quite expensive.’

Sainsbury’s will be handing over a cheque for £200 at the school’s annual harvest festival this year.
