350 pupils from a Worsley primary school have been offered the chance to put their menu ideas in front of ex-Manchester United star Ryan Giggs.
Next month he’ll judge a competition to find new dishes for his restaurant’s children’s menu: George’s Dining Room and Bar on Barton Road in Worsley.
Pupils age 4-11 at St Mark’s Primary School in Worsley are being offered the opportunity to design a new drink or menu item for the local eaterie.
Once the winner is chosen, George’s have promised to donate 50% of the sales from the winning item to the school’s Parent Teacher Association.
The design work has already started flooding in with pencils, paints and pens being put through their paces.
With the whole school taking part the competition is expected to be fierce.
Ideas for alcohol-free mocktails are already impressing the three-member judging panel, which includes restaurant directors Kelvin Gregory and Bernie Taylor.
George’s head chef will also oversee the whole process.
Upper Key Stage 2 manager and year five teacher, Sandra Boardman said: “The whole school is excited for the competition with George’s and we are incredibly grateful for them giving us this opportunity.”
The competition is scheduled to last until mid-February.
The winner will be announced at a special school assembly with a high profile guest crowning the winner, before inviting them and their family to George’s for a celebratory meal.
Kelvin Gregory said: “George’s are pleased to be interacting with the local community and giving something back to one of Worsley’s best schools – who knows, we may even discover a future sous chef for our kitchen!”
