Kinsale Junior School team up with Paul Lambert for cook book

Copies of a new healthy eating cookbook, put together by children with the help of a few celebrities, flew off the shelves following a grand launch.

A dedicated team of seven youngsters from Hellesdon's Kinsale Junior School, named the Aquila Club, called on the likes of Norwich City manager Paul Lambert to give recipes for their book, which will raise money for the East Anglian Air Ambulance.

Anglia Television presenter Becky Jago and Norfolk chef Galton Blackiston have also supported the charity venture, while the Aquila Club ran a competition that got other primary school children from across the region to contribute ideas.

The book, called Let's Cook, was launched at Asda in Hellesdon.

Head teacher Carolyn Baxter said: 'The students would give The Apprentice stars a run for their money. They put the book together before school, learnt the software needed for it and have been really dedicated.

Alisa Nice, 11, gave an opening speech at the launch and Mrs Baxter reported that within hours 'over a hundred' books had already been sold.

In the past the Aquila Club designed and created Norfolk's Fine Foods, a board game produced by Orchard Toys which is now on sale nationwide.

There are 1,500 copies in production, priced at �4.99. They will also be available directly from the charity.
