ONE of the borough’s primary schools has received a surprise supply of books from an unlikely source - a restaurant.

Frankie and Benny’s restaurant dished up £500 worth of books to delighted children from Intake Primary School, with the help of its mascot Sketch.

The yellow T-shirt wearing pooch personally delivered the array of fiction and non-fiction books during his visit to the the school in Sidney Road.

The Bawtry Road-based New York/Italian site has bought over 300 books to be served up to primary schools across South Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.

Frankie and Benny’s also hosts food-based healthy eating workshops for youngsters.

Fiona Gooch, area marketing co-ordinator for the restaurant, said: “As a responsible business we look beyond being a restaurant, and actively seek to play a positive part in the communities we serve. Education has always been important to Frankie and Benny’s.

“Our restaurants regularly host pizza making workshops for school pupils, therefore we feel that supporting local schools in this way is a logical step to take.”
