Sixpenny kids make £100s for Children in Need
Enterprising youngsters at Sixpenny Day Nursery in Minal have raised hundreds of pounds for Children in Need.
The proceeds of a fancy dress day, pyjama day and face painting have gone to Pudsey Bear, to help children at home and abroad.
And on Friday a week of activities was wrapped up with Pudsey-shaped cookie making for the pre-school class, under the tutelage of Androulla Derbyshire.
Androulla, who runs Culinary Capers, will be launching her cookery school from the nursery’s kitchen in December.
A course of cookery classes starts on December 10, when Androulla will teach attendees how to prepare for a Christmas cocktail party.
Over coming months there will be a range of courses aimed at beginners and intermediaries, from bread making to baking to the exploration of the cuisine of other cultures, including a curry band quest and a Middle Eastern cookery event.
There will also be basics classes for teenagers and children, while bake-along birthday parties will also be held at the kitchens.
