BACK-TO-SCHOOL blues always kick in come September but youngsters at Broughton Fields Primary School received an extra bonus at the start of the new term thanks to a nearby restaurant.

Mark Fitzsimon, manager of the Hungry Horse in Broughton, decided to donate 160 pencil cases to the school to give students a little boost.

He said: “As we are a family-friendly restaurant it seemed a good idea to donate some pencil cases for the new term.

“We could so we did.”
