Youngsters in Clayhall are helping to prepare for the biggest moment in hunger campaigning history by getting creative and designing hundred of flowers.

Pupils at Glade Primary School, Atherton Road, made hundreds of windmill flowers on Monday, which will be planted on an arrow in Hyde Park pointing to the G8 event in London, as part of UNICEF’s Big IF campaign.

The event is the peak of the Enough Food for Everyone programme which aims to end global hunger and is supported by over 200 charities.

The children also heard from a representative from the charity, Save the Children, about how hunger affects one in eight people and kills a child every 15 seconds.
