Fenmarc donate a Christmas hamper of Fenland vegetables to Burrowmoor School

PUPILS from the Burrowmoor School at March tucked into some fresh Fenland vegetables with their Christmas lunch yesterday, thanks to the generosity of Fenmarc Produce Ltd.

The company donated potatoes, carrots and parsnips that went down a storm with the 275 youngsters who enjoyed a festive lunch menu that also included turkey, sausages and bacon, and Christmas ice cream.

School catering manager Charlotte Butcher said: “We are very grateful to Fenmarc, as it enabled our pupils to have local vegetable with their lunch. Our pupils really love to eat lots of vegetables, and they all enjoyed the special lunch.

“It was really lovely event, with the excited children pulling their crackers, and wearing party hats.”

The vegetables were presented to the school by Fenmarc’s HR business partner Sue Watson and graduate management trainee Hamish Critchell-Ward.
