THERE are only a few days left to ensure that your local school is in with a chance of winning equipment worth hundreds of pounds.

Voting for the Shop for Schools competition at The Marlands Shopping Centre, run in partnership with the Daily Echo, ends on Friday.

Shoppers at the popular centre have been allocating points to their favourite school, earned with every pound they spend in stores within the centre.

The school with the most points by 6pm on Friday will win £500 of equipment, and two runner-up schools will also receive fantastic cash prizes.

Currently setting the pace is Glenfield Infant School, with Sholing Junior and Sholing Infant schools in second and third places respectively.

So with just a few days left to vote, make sure you hold on to your receipts when shopping at The Marlands and convert them into points at the helpdesk in the centre for the school of your choice.

Double points are also available by submitting receipts with vouchers that have been appearing in the Daily Echo.
