Midcounties Co-op has funded a friendship bench at a Shropshire school.

Pupils at St Peter&#039s School in Wem received a &#163 350 grant for the bench from the Co-operaive Community Dividend fund to encourage children to socialise and make friends.

Simon Thornley, manager of Wem Co-op, is pictured on the bench with schoolchildren Kieran Beever (11) and Jane Towers (6).
