A cheque for £500 has been presented to the under-12 girls from Stevenage Boro Juniors by Sainsbury's at Corey's Mill.

The store, in Hitchin Road, has donated the money to the club to provide a new home kit for the girls.

Coach and team manager Danielle Quelch said: "The girls are currently top of the table in Division Two of the Home Counties Girls' League.

"They have also progressed to the quarter-finals of the league cup by beating two Division One teams in the group stages. The new kit will be a big boost for the team."

The supermarket raised the cash using a new scheme that encourages customers to recycle plastic shopping bags, cutting waste as well as being kind to the environment.

Sainsbury's store manager, Mark Siggins, said: "We play an important role in this community and want to do all that we can to be part of it.
