TALENTED pupils at a Worcester primary have created their own cookbook to help raise funds for the school.

Children at St George’s RC Primary School in Thorneloe Walk, Barbourne have collected 70 recipes from school families, their headteacher, Gill Gittins, other staff, governors and friends.

The book is something of a global culinary celebration as there are recipes from 17 countries, to feature all the different nationalities and cultures that make up the school community.

The children are excited to have their favourite recipes included, and there is a wide range to choose from – from favourite breakfasts to energising snacks, refreshing salads to comforting soups, budget meals to special occasions, simple to spectacular desserts.

Matt Dadge, chair of the school's Friends committee, said: “Thank you so much to everyone who has contributed by sharing their recipes, ideas, time and funds.

"We are especially grateful to our sponsors Nicol & Co., Aspens Catering, Ooh La La Beauty and Wishing Well Nurseries for helping towards the production costs. Nicol & Co even ran a Bake Off style competition to win a place to feature in the book. Sales manager, Scott Hyde won and we are proud to include one of his regular favourites, his chicken, mango and avocado salad.”

Headteacher Mrs Gittins said one of the aims was to provide the pupils with a memento of their time at the school.

“We hope this book will be a treasured gift, and a special keepsake of the childrens’ primary school memories, shared friendships and community spirit,” she said.

"We have received fantastic support from local businesses, many of whom have included recipes in the book, from Benedictos, Gwillams Farm Shop, Richards Sandy Accountants, Jade Temple Photography and one of our parents and designer of the book, Mr Ben Barnes."

If would like to buy a copy of the recipe book, it costs £8.75. Please contact Mrs Phillips at the school reception on 01905 25841 or email stgeorgesrcrecipebook@gmail.com
