Pupils held a bake-off to raise money for books.


Pupils in Clevedon have raised £1,700 to buy new books.

Youngsters at Yeo Moor Primary School, in Kennaway Road, baked hundreds of cakes to take part in a book bake-off to help raise funds.

They also read books during a sponsored silence.

Headteacher Roland Lovatt said: “The children have done absolutely amazingly.

“We are delighted with this figure and the pupils had great fun in raising the money.”

The money raised will be used to buy thousands of new books for pupils to enjoy.

Yeo Moor also received a boost to its book selection when it became the first school to be given 100 books through the Times’ Books For Schools campaign.

The initiative aims to help schools to provide pupils with a wider choice of books to help them enjoy reading.

Trinity Primary School in Portishead has also received a book donation thanks to the campaign.
