Children were given a festive feast to round off the autumn term at Palatine Primary School.

A hamper bursting with Christmas goodies was delivered to the community special school in Goring by Asda Ferring.

The children had a fantastic time, said teacher Amy McLean

The bumper package included a selection of fresh fruit and vegetables, cheese, cocktail sausages, sausage rolls and yoghurts, plus an array of Christmas crackers, party hats and party poppers.

Mick Kelly, community champion at Asda Ferring, attended the party with Worthing mayor Sean McDonald.

Mr Kelly said: “We were only too happy to provide Palatine Primary with the donation. Hopefully, the Christmas party gave both the children and the teachers a treat after a busy first school term and got them into the festive spirit.”

The school has 129 pupils aged from four to 11 with moderate, severe of profound learning needs.

Teacher Amy McLean said: “It was great that the mayor and Mick had time to visit us and join in with our Christmas party. We are very grateful for the products donated by Asda. The children had a fantastic time.”
