Children's pop up canteen in Rickmansworth raises cash for Great Ormond Street Hospital
Children set up a charity canteen in a Rickmansworth green to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital.
While most youngsters were out making the most of the remaining days of their summer break, six children took it upon themselves to raise some cash for a good cause.
On Friday, from 9am until 7pm, Maxwell Close, in Mill End, had its very own mini restaurant.
The youngsters, aged between eight and 10-years-old, designed their own menus, produced promotional leaflets, took orders and even helped cook the dishes on the day.
A breakfast and lunch menu were produced, as well as afternoon tea.
Alison Jones, whose daughter, Bethany, was a waitress and assistant manager, said the idea came from the children, who wanted to raise money for charity.
She added: "The kids have done everything and it turned out to be such a community event that I think we’ll do it again next year."
The manager on the day was Josh Plant, with help from Amy Chaplin, Jack Jones, Gabriella Plant and Connor Davey.
Most of the children are from St Peter's School, in Church Lane, and a total of £165 was raised for Great Ormond Street.
