Cooking up charity cash
3:11pm Thursday 3rd October 2013 in News
CHIPPENHAM Mayor Sylvia Gibson was among those who helped to raise £1,016 at London Road Dental Practice’s coffee morning on Friday.
Businesses donated bric-a-brac and books, with a jam stall by Tiddlywink Treats.
For Langley Fitzurse Primary School in Kington Langley, the coffee morning was a good chance to show off their newly refurbished kitchen, as well as raising £516 for Macmillan.
It has lain empty for years since a new facility was built, but has now been made child friendly with lowered surfaces and new equipment, so children at the school can learn to cook.
The work cost £4,000 and was funded by a £1,000 Let’s Get Cooking competition prize plus donations from the PTA and school community.
Headteacher Becky Harris said: “Our kitchen is a real bonus to the school, and we will make lots of use of it. A huge fundraising effort helped transform this room into a modern child-friendly space, and we are already planning lots of cookery projects for our children.”
