PUPILS have donated tins of food to the Arena Church’s community food bank as part of their project to become community champions.

Children from years four and five at Cotmanhay Junior School and Granby Junior School were set the task of writing a pledge to the community and school about how they will improve their behaviour to help teachers and parents.

Pcso Webb said: “The children have really taken this task on board and teachers have seen a noticeable difference in their behaviour.”

Children visited Frankie and Bennie’s as a reward for their hard work.
