Children from the Brownhill Primary Academy, Leeds, are going “crackers” for Christmas after seeing their seasonal designs stocked in Co-op stores across the country.
This year we asked pupils at one of the Co-operative Academies Trust schools to help design crackers to sell in our food stores.
The children were given design hints and tips from Hallmark cards and Georgie Westmoreland, who sources products for the Co-op, and their favourite festive drawings were used to make Christmas crackers which are on sale in more than 1,000 of our stores.
The Co-op crackers will also spread Christmas cheer in communities across the UK thanks to our membership proposition which means local causes receive 1% every time a member swipes their card when purchasing own-branded products and services.
“This has been fantastic festive fun. They look great, the children were very excited to see the crackers that they had helped to create – and enjoyed putting them to the test before the big day! We are always looking for creative and enjoyable ways in which to bring the curriculum to life for our children and our work with the Co-op certainly helps to achieve this.” Beverley Blanchfield, Head of School, Brownhill Primary Academy.
