Superb Sharon cooks thousands of meals throughout COVID-19 lockdown – despite breaking her arm while charity fundraising

By Jill Dando News

Sharon Davies of St Anne’s Church Academy in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset was put in plaster by A and E doctors after breaking her arm during a fall while doing a 26.2 mile charity virtual walk on London Marathon day back in April.

But despite being urged by staff to take a break, Sharon continue to serve up meals right throughout the lockdown – and was this week cooking hundreds more.

Sharon said: “I love my job and was determined to continue cooking meals for the pupils throughout the lockdown. There was no way that a broken arm was going to stop me!

“This is a fabulous school, with great children and staff and is a real community.”

Emma Hardy-Smith, Principal, said: “Sharon is so loved by our school community and is a real inspiration. She always has a smile and nothing is ever too much trouble.

“She was absolutely convinced that she would continue making school meals for the pupils come what may, despite us telling her to take time out.”

Last year St Anne’s teacher Diane Martin scooped the Pearson Primary Teacher of the Year award in the South West after 17 years of incredible teaching. She finished runner-up nationally.

The school also has its own amazing nursery called Little Learners and a Jill Dando News Centre, training up pupils to be good news reporters.
