CHESHUNT, England, July 12, 2011 -

Tesco has teamed up with its Uniform Embroidery Service Team to
give away embroidered school uniforms to every child at two lucky
primary schools in time for the start of the new school year this

As one of the first choices for mums and dads to purchase their
children’s school uniform, Tesco knows that value for money as well
as quality are important factors in selecting school uniform, which
is why Tesco sells both quality items and its value range online
throughout the year.

In 2010, Tesco launched its School Embroidery Service online at
tesco.com/clothing which allows parents to purchase their child’s
uniform online throughout the year complete with their school’s
crest already embroidered.

The uniform embroidery service makes it easy for parents to
order children’s href="www.clothingattesco.com/icat/embschoolwear/">embroided
schoolwear and have it delivered to their doors already
embroidered. Schools and parents can register their interest for
the School embroidery service by visiting

Tesco have launched this href="www.facebook.com/Clothingattesco?sk=app_238549372823375">
school uniform competition through an app on its Facebook

To be in with the chance of winning a free 100% cotton 2 pack
polo shirt and cotton rich sweater complete with embroidered school
crests for every pupil at their child’s primary school, parents can
visit the Clothing at Tesco Facebook page and vote for their
child’s school to win.

Voting started on Monday 4th July and closes on Wednesday 13th
July when the school with the highest number of votes will win the
uniforms and, because Tesco know a few lucky schools (mainly in
Scotland) will have broken up for the holidays or may not be around
to vote and some schools may have smaller communities than others,
the company will be selecting a second school at random to win

This year Tesco has over 80 pieces of href="www.clothingattesco.com/boys+girls-school-uniform/icat/back-to-school">
Back to School uniform, across its Value, Core, Signature and
Fairtrade range  as well as  more features and benefits
than ever before, with superior quality.

Tesco’s Value back to
school uniform, along with Tesco’s Core and Premium F&F
Signature uniform ranges, have been rigorously tested  for
wear and tear to British and European Testing Standards.

The Tesco Back to School rangeis available all year round with
new styles in store in June.  A wide range that includes
shirts, pique polo shirts, school trousers, school shoes, href="www.clothingattesco.com/ages-5-13-boys-clothing/back-to-school-boys-2-pack-shorts/invt/ag111047/">

About Tesco:

Tesco is able to offer its uniform to customers based on strong
relationships with its suppliers built over a long period of time,
and also due to the volumes it buys in.  Purchasing high
volumes from suppliers means Tesco can work together with its
manufacturers to pass on fantastic cost savings to customers.

Tesco is a founder member of the Ethical Trading Initiative and
continues to support efforts to improve workers’ conditions in all
the countries and factories its buys from.  

Tesco offers clothing banks in selected stores to encourage
parents to recycle old school uniforms.  Old school uniforms
collected in the clothing banks are donated to several charities
and the money raised will then be used to support good causes.

Tesco’s successful Buy One, Give One school uniform donation
scheme is about to launch in stores and online for the third year.
For every skirt, trouser or two pack of Fairtrade cotton polo
shirts bought from Tesco’s ’You Buy One, We Give One’ range
this summer, Tesco will donate a complete uniform to a child in
Kenya, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.
