CHILDREN at Sidemoor First School have been busy in the kitchen, slaving over a hot oven to make hundreds of gingerbread men.

The pupils in year two and three at the school, baked the tasty treats to raise money for the charity Shelter, with several teachers stepping in to make and decorate their own gingerbread cottages to add to the fun.

Amanda Baldwin, chair of the Sidemoor First School Friends Association, said: “The children had a great day working hard to make as many gingerbread men has they could, and it was a great atmosphere in the school.

"We made around 400 gingerbread men and every biscuit was sold. The teachers made 16 gingerbread houses which we raffled off.”

Overall the school’s baking efforts managed to raise approximately £350 for the homeless charity.
