LOUDOUN Academy pupils have formed their own munch bunch – and they want Standard readers to help them put together a mouth-watering recipe book.
Credit Munch is the official title of the Galston school’s young enterprise group.
It comprises around a dozen 15 to 17-year-old students.
Said one, Iain Barnard: “Our aim is to create a recipe book and an accompanying DVD featuring lots of healthy, local recipes in time for the Christmas market.”
That means the rush is on, with Christmas Day just three months away.
Said Iain: “We want people to get their recipe ideas in as soon as possible, although we can extend the September 30 deadline slightly if need be.
“We feel that it’s important for everyone to eat good, healthy food that’s also cheap in hard times such as these. And we’d love the book to be all wrapped up before Christmas so that people will have a chance to buy it as a stocking-filler.”
Any readers who contribute recipes that are printed in the new book will not only get a name-check in the publication, they will also receive a free copy.
The pupils in Credit Munch are holding several fundraisers over the next few weeks to help raise cash for their project. As well as ‘selling’ Guitar Hero computer sessions and nail-painting classes at lunchtimes, they will also be washing cars.
So, do you have a favourite recipe you’d like to see make it into the munch bunch book?
If so send a copy to: Credit Munch competition, Loudoun Academy, Glasgow Road, Galston KA4 8PD.The closing date is Wednesday, September 30.
