Celebrity chef, Jenny Bristow cooks up a winning recipe for Banbridge Academy

An inspired choice

Over 100 entries were received from schools across Northern Ireland and after much deliberation the judging panel awarded first place to Lucy Wan and Emma Telford for their inspired paella dish.

Chef, Jenny Bristow said: "The quality and standard of the menus that I received were absolutely fantastic; I could tell that each student had put a lot of time and effort into them.

"I hope that taking part in my school’s competition has helped pupils to gain nutritional knowledge for a runner taking part in a sporting activity..."

As official charity partner for the competition has also encouraged people to join CLIC Sargent 'Run for Home' team which is raising funds for charity's Northern Ireland Appeal.

CLIC Sargent Northern Ireland Appeal Director Teresa Sloan said: "We are absolutely delighted to work with our ambassador Jenny Bristow, on this school initiative and we are so pleased with number and quality of entries.

CLIC Sargent would like to thank all the schools that entered for their commitment and support for the competition and the CLIC Sargent Northern Ireland Appeal.

"The Appeal to date has received tremendous support…but we still have some way to go before we reach the fundraising target. 

So, if you’re a runner and are interested in getting involved in the Deep RiverRock Belfast City Half Marathon, why not do it and 'Run for Home' any money you raise will stay in Northern Ireland and go directly to the Appeal."
