MONIFIETH’S elderly received a welcome festive boost thanks to their local supermarket.

On Tuesday Tesco Monifieth presented two grandparents with a Christmas hamper, thanks to the writing skills of their primary-aged grandchildren.

A spokesperson for the store explained: “We set them a challenge to write a letter explaining why their elderly relative deserves a big bumper Christmas hamper this year.

“They’ve really taken to it and the response has been fantastic.

“It’s a thank you to the community. We’ve decided we wanted to give something back to the community and we felt this would be a good way to say thank you for all their help with our fund-raising this year.”

The winner from Grange Primary School was Georgia Carnegie and from Seaview Primary School Mark Curran.

While the grandparents received a hamper full of treats, the children were also presented with a prize and a tin of sweeties for their school.
