Box of Waitrose delights

20th February 2004 at 00:00
The geography department at Bristol's new city academy, based on the former St George community college, has lots to contend with. They are currently going through a major rebuilding programme, and their head of department is on a one-year sabbatical travelling the world. He insists on sending them postcards and emails describing sandy beaches, volcanoes and mountains.

"All this while we brave freezing temperatures, drizzle and stacks of marking," says teacher Mike Broad. The Waitrose hamper will cheer them up and "may even entice him back early!"

The hamper contains a refreshing lemon drink, home-made jams and lemon curd, mouth-watering chocolates and crunchy biscuits. It usually costs pound;46 and is available exclusively from Waitrose Direct Gifts, at www.waitrose. com, which delivers to any mainland UK address. For a chance to win one, just tell us why you and your colleagues deserve it. Send your message, marked Waitrose offer, by email or postcard to the address on the right.
