AN Eastwood councillor has donated £500 towards a new after-school cooking club in Eastwood.
Cllr Keith Longdon presented the cheque to pupils and teachers at Greasley Beauvale Primary School, who have put the money towards ten individual cooking stations and equipment.
Organisers Sarah Fowkes and Barry Cooper hope to expand the classes to involve other primary schools in the area.
Ms Fowkes said the aim of the master chef classes was to encourage life skills, self esteem and to build the children’s confidence in the kitchen.
Cllr Longdon said: “Young people should be encouraged to learn new skills and being able to cook simple meals will help them in the future.”
