STUDENTS gave away shopping bags to supermarket customers to advertise their school and give people a helping hand.

The youngsters from Hans Price Academy in Marchfields Way, Weston-super-Mare, gave away 300 bags at Asda in Phillips Road.

The Government has introduced a 5p charge on plastic bags to try to reduce the number being handed out by supermarkets, and to help the environment.

Chantelle Cresser, business manager at Hans Price, came up with the idea.

She said: “We purchase bags to give away at our open evenings but I thought this would be a much more worthwhile and environmentally-friendly cause.

“It will advertise the academy and we hope be of real value to Asda customers.”
