A school cook served thousands of meals to youngsters during lockdown - despite breaking her arm while fundraising for charity.
Sharon Davies of St Anne’s Church Academy was put in plaster after breaking her arm during a fall while doing a 26.2mile charity virtual walk on London Marathon day back in April.
But, despite being urged by staff to take a break, Sharon continued to serve up meals throughout lockdown.
Sharon said: “I love my job and was determined to continue cooking meals for the pupils throughout the lockdown.
"There was no way that a broken arm was going to stop me.
“This is a fabulous school, with great children and staff and is a real community.”
Emma Hardy-Smith, principal, added: “Sharon is so loved by our school community and is a real inspiration.
