A Co-op store in Northampton has held a special event to support local school children.

Shop staff and customers raised more than £300 for Barry Road School with a host of events including a bagpipes performance, a tasting session and a raffle.

The money raised will go to help rebuild a wall, seriously damaged by a lorry driver, and to complete some work in the playground area.

Children from the school also released balloons to support the Barry Road store’s Co-op membership launch.
