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.
