‘Popcorn Friday’ is a winner for students

Students at Harrington Sound Primary School were treated to cinema tickets along with a school donation, thanks to a cottage business run by a businessman and photographer Antwan Albuoy.

‘Popcorn Friday’ sprang from a bake sale fundraiser begun last year by Mr Albuoy that grew into a business, Crave Popcorn. Part of the proceeds from his Popcorn Fridays go toward schools. “How it gets used is up to the schools themselves,” he said.

In the case of Harrington Sound, a $500 donation will go toward the science lab. He hopes to double the donation by the end of this school term.

Mr Albuoy hopes to use his business for fund raisers at the Berkeley Institute and CedarBridge Academy next.
