School cookery book serves up treats for charity
Pupils publish recipe ideas to help pay for respite activities for young carers.
A COOKERY book produced by Barnstaple schoolchildren is proving to be a big hit with a local charity that provides respite activities for young carers, with more than 60 copies sold on the day of the launch.
Year 7 pupils at Pilton Community College asked classmates and teachers to submit recipe ideas for the book, being sold in aid of Bideford-based charity Carewise.
At a special launch in the school library on Wednesday week, teacher Dawn Wilson-North said students tried to provide a mix of meal ideas that would be useful to families.
The book features everything from tasty tiffins and brownies, to heart warming soups and roast dinners.
