A nursery showed its business acumen to combine Pancake Day with raising money for a school project.

Glemsford Primary Academy is currently fundraising to purchase 30 tablets for its ICT classes.

On Shrove Tuesday, youngsters in the school’s nursery ran a pancake café to lend a helping hand.

As well as selling pancakes, people were invited to guess how many pancakes would be made – and flipped – throughout the day.

Nursery teacher Helen Clutterham said she was delighted with how hard the children worked and the money raised from the event.

In total, children made 163 pancakes and raised £76.50.

The nursery was also supported by a donation of £113 from the village’s Women’s Institute towards the project.
