Moulsecoomb Primary School puts on free Christmas meal Brighton News

Staff at Moulsecoomb Primary School put on the festive feast in collaboration with Nourish Contract Catering for 100 guests who enjoyed all the trimmings to the backdrop of Christmas tunes.

As well as food and music, a visit from Father Christmas also ensured that each child went home with a gift.

The annual tradition originated from The Pioneer Academy Trust wanting to make sure that everyone got a Christmas dinner during the festive period.

It is now a fixture on the calendar at all schools in the trust.
