CHILDREN'S favourites Wallace and Gromit were at Allesley Hall Primary School on Thursday.

The popular Aardman duo were promoting a campaign to improve the quality of life for sick children in hospitals and hospices across the country.

Pupils got the chance to have their picture taken with the characters as well as sample a menu of Wallace and Gromit shaped pasta in tomato sauce and special biscuits.

School food provider Pasta King has recently launched a range of pasta meals into primary schools and for every case of pasta sauce sold £1 will be donated to the fund-raising campaign run in conjunction with the Wallace and Gromit's Children's Foundation.
