Youngsters in Eagle class at Uplands School in North Swindon combined a topic on native Americans and the school’s commitment to ‘giving back to the community’ by preparing and delivering a large batch of butternut squash soup to residents of Booth House, the Salvation Army Lifehouse in the town centre.

Class teacher Rachael Callan said the 11 to 13 year olds with learning difficulties usually eat what they cook but wanted to donate their work. “They had a lot of fun peeling and cutting up the ingredients, making the stock and a tasty soup.”

Booth House administrator Lucy Marston thanked the children for making the delivery and said the soup would be served that evening.
