In order to raise money for children’s mental health charity Young Minds, Bede’s Senior School have released a cookbook featuring recipes created in the last national lockdown.
Pupils and staff worked together with the school’s catering company, Holroyd Howe, on the cookbook, which features a range of sweet and savoury recipes.
Online copies of the cookbook are being sold for £5, with all proceeds being donated to Young Minds. So far, £135.00 has been raised. The school hopes the money raised will help children affected by the pandemic.
“The project was initiated by our service and wellbeing committee prefects, who were keen to do something to help those in need during the lockdown,” said Jarrod Taylor, chaplain at Bede’s.
“It was fantastic to see pupils and staff from across the year groups submit recipes for the cookbook, and we are incredibly grateful to everyone who buys a copy and donates to such a vital cause.”

Holroyd Howe will be recreating the recipes for lunches at the school over the coming weeks.
Mark Greenfield, Holroyd Howe’s general manager at Bede’s Senior School, said: “We are delighted to be involved in this project – it was fantastic to be a part of the cookbook’s creation, especially as it is raising funds for such a good cause.
“We are so impressed with the recipes featured that we look forward to recreating them as part of our lunch menu over the coming weeks.”
Bede’s Senior School is a co-educational day and boarding school with 770 pupils from the age of 13-18 years old. Bede’s also has nursery, prep and sixth form schools.
