A DONATION of £5,000 has been given to students at St Julian's school by Sainsbury's supermarket.
Around 63 students from St Julian’s School’s learning development centre will benefit from the donation, after the store chosen the centre as its charity of the year.
The money will be spent on reward activities and equipment for social time, including games, sports equipment and garden furniture.
Anne King who works in the learning development centre said the cash will benefit all its pupils.
"Our pupils come from across Newport and this generous donation will help massively," she said.
"Sainsbury's also contribute to our very popular breakfast club which is available to all pupils daily, including weekly bread donations and a £500 food voucher which is greatly appreciated."
Last Christmas, the supermarket gave all pupils a Christmas dinner and this year pupils have once again been invited to attend another festive meal.
In the summer, the shop manager joined pupils for a game of tennis at Allt-yr-yn tennis club and provided strawberries and cream for their own Wimbledon festival.
Members of the public have also donated toiletries and selection boxes in-store over the last year to the centre.
