Samworth Church Academy’s year 7 students took receipt of a bible each, courtesy of religious group, The Gideons.

Pupil Molly Williams, said: “I am happy to have received the gift and I have learned that the Harry Potter books sold about 400 million and this little book has reached 1.5 billion!”

Named after an Old Testament leader, the Gideons was founded in 1899 by three American business men. Pictured above (l-r) is Molly Williams (12), Dylan Hustwayte (11) and Olivia Bonser-Storey (12).
