Corby Radio is saying "thank you" to both the public and to organisers of a charitable scheme.

It's after confirmation your community station has been granted £3,000 from the Tesco "Bags of Help" scheme that was run with the cause Groundwork.

Shoppers in Tesco stores across Corby and in neighbouring towns where asked to place blue tokens with one of three causes to decide how much each should receive. Support for the station means it can now invest in new equipment for its free-of-charge radio academy for teenagers.

The funds come from Tesco's 5 pence charge for carrier bags.
