Cucina doubles funds raised at its school restaurants for Children in Need

School catering company Cucina doubled the money raised for Children in Need at its school restaurants last week, donating a total of £3000 to the charity.

Pudsey shaped cakes, cookies, themed buns and special pizza were on offer at Cucina Restaurants at schools and academies up and down the Country last Friday. Staff got into the spirit of things with costumes and a party atmosphere raising £1,500 for Children In Need which was doubled by the catering company, creating an overall total of £3000.

Thirty Seven schools across England were eating healthily last week and raising money in aid of Pudsey. In all, 50,000 schoolchildren in schools in Bedfordshire, Berkshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Kent, London, Manchester, Middlesex, Northamptonshire and Surrey helped to raise the cash in fun food initiatives for Children in Need.

Steve Quinn, Managing Director of Cucina, said: “This was a great team effort and we are delighted that Cucina could assist the schools in raising money for such a worthwhile charity through fun and interactive events involving our food service. Our cheque contributed to the record total of more than £26 million raised for Children In Need this year.”

Cucina Restaurants Ltd. serves fresh food to 50,000 pupils at 37 contracts up and down the country and is committed to providing quality, healthy meals at all schools. The School Food Trust has just chosen a case study about how it does this for its web site.
