More than 700 students from a Highbridge school made chocolate and sweets gift boxes to thank key workers.
Pupils from King Alfred School Academy students each made the cardboard boxes in their design technology lessons, to give to local key workers, parents or relatives who are keyworkers and helpers in the community.
Local sweet shop, Burnham’s Sweet Shack, helped provide sweets and chocolates to fill the boxes at cost value.
Mark Barham, head of head of design technology at the school, said: “Due to Covid safety restrictions on workshop access we developed a ‘design-and-make’ activity that can still be delivered safely in any classroom.
“We were humbled when we heard the positive reactions from key workers who have been receiving the surprises.
