A QUIRKY quiz has led to students donating one million grains of rice in support of the World Food Programme (WFP).

Pupils at Churchill Academy and Sixth Form have answered more than 100,000 questions as part of the WFP’s Free Rice quiz in the past six weeks.

For every question answered, Free Rice donates 10 grains of rice to support some of the hungriest people around the world.

Richard Parish, cover supervisor at the academy, said: “This is a great initiative that gave the students something educational to work towards as well as supporting a fantastic organisation and cause.”
