It works by asking children to prepare a meal, snack or dinner and then ask parents or carers to donate what they would have paid in a restaurant to the cause.

It is raising funds for three local charities: The Mind Map, Faces and Bedford Foodbank.

So far about £1,400 has been raised of the £1,500 target.
