IGA donate $200 for reading texts

THE Broadwater Public School will use $200 donated to the school by the Evans Head IGA supermarket to buy new guided reading texts for the K-2 class.

The funds were part of $2300 handed over by IGA to local community and other organisations as part of their Community Chest program.

"Over the past few years we have developed a close link to the IGA and have been extremely grateful for their donations," school principal Steve Curtin said.

"These donations provide additional funds to help purchase resources for our small school with little effort required from the school or its community

Other local organisations to benefit were St Joseph's Primary School, Evans Head Living Museum, Evans Head Neighbourhood Centre, the Evans Head Community Preschool and the Casino Surf Life Saving and Marine Rescue.

"It's fantastic to see funds from IGA Community Chest injected back into the local community where it was raised," IGA Evans Head store manager Kristy George said.

"IGA Evans Head takes pride in supporting the local community that supports us."
