Tesco community champion Mandy Jinkerson went to Fair Play Holiday Club in Royston to help them make ice cream cakes.


Children at a holiday club in Royston got to take part in a seriously cool cooking activity – making ice cream cakes with the town’s Tesco community champion.

Mandy Jinkerson popped into Fair Play Holiday Club help the children cook up a storm.

“We made 56 ice cream cakes with each child helping to weigh, stir and bake the cakes in ice cream cones,” she said. “When they were cool they each decorated a cake to look like a ‘99’ ice cream cone.

“Everyone had great fun selecting their toppings and sauce, the only downside was they had to wait to eat them!”

Fair Play’s deputy manager Eva Heraculeous said the visit went down a treat with children and their parents.

“Every single child enjoyed it,” she said. “They love taking part in different activities and this was very hands-on.

“Mandy comes in several times a year and parents love to see what the children make – and the children love showing off their creations too.”
