Stu­dents make sushi for char­ity

Northern Outlook - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS - JONATHAN LEASK

Stu­dent-made sushi in Cust has raised funds for un­der­priv­i­leged peo­ple liv­ing in East­ern Europe.

The Cust School Bible-in­S­chools class made sushi and is do­nat­ing the pro­ceeds to char­ity.

The stu­dents ar­rived school an hour early to make the sushi which was sold at lunchtime. Over nine lunch hours, they raised more than $800.

The stu­dents then de­cided how the money should be spent and opted to support Mis­sion With­out Borders, an or­gan­i­sa­tion that sends a ship­ping con­tainer of goods to un­der­priv­i­leged peo­ple liv­ing in East­ern Europe.

Half the funds were used to pur­chase veg­etable seeds, and the other half went to buy­ing four­teen blan­kets to con­trib­ute to the ship­ping con­tainer.

‘‘It’s a very holis­tic learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for the stu­dents’’ Bible-in-School teacher Gina Tag­gart said.
