SCHOOLS in Royston were given a boost last week, after parents collected hundreds of vouchers for new computers.

Pupils and staff from Roman Way First School, Tannery Drift First School and Greneway School were presented with new computers by North-east Herts MP Oliver Heald and Kath Holt, customer services manager at the Tesco store in Royston.

Mrs Holt said: "It's amazing the amount of youngsters who use computers now, both in the school and at home."

Parents had been collecting the vouchers as part of Tesco's Computers for Schools campaign, which helped raise computer equipment for schools.
