A store has backed youngsters in a football team.

Tesco Heanor’s community champion, Jodie Abbott, and store manager Louise Boerder, had discussed sponsoring a local football team to support the local community when they were approached for help by Heanor Junior Dynamos’ manager Mark Poundall.

The store agreed to sponsor the under-8s.

Jodie said: “After talks we had our name printed on to the new kits and the kids are loving them

“All of us at Tesco in Heanor are absolutely thrilled to be involved in supporting the boys and look forward to their upcoming games with their new kits.”
