Youngsters at a village primary school have spent money they have raised themselves to host a special lunch for the community.

The children at Yelvertoft Primary School organised the event held on Friday.

A number of OAPs and parents were invited into the school to enjoy a lunch of hot freshly made soup made by children from all the different classes in the school, served up with crusty bread.

Class Four teacher, Emily Muskin, said: “At the start of the year, we gave £10 to the school council and we asked them to make that grow,

“They first of all had a cake sale and managed to raise £120 and so they have reinvested this money so they could host the lunch.

“We wanted to do something for the wider village community.”

The school has managed to raise £140 which Miss Muskin says will be used to invest in the children’s future.

She added: “The school council has decided it wants to purchase some digital cameras and they want to have a bank of them and add to them as they raise more money.”

There were about 60 members of the local community who attended the event and the school was delighted with how it went.

Miss Muskin added: “The children were really pleased with the amount of money that they raised.

“They also really got into it with the chance to be waiters and taking orders. They loved doing it.

“It was a great day. Everyone had a really good time. We had a lot positive reaction from the people who visited the school saying how polite and courteous they all were.”
