Dad's model will be on Blue Peter
EAST YORKS: A matchstick model of the Humber Bridge, made for Goole High School by a parent, is set to feature on Blue Peter on Thursday.
The CBBC programme asked the academy to help with a challenge presenter Helen Skelton is taking up for Comic Relief. She is attempting seven challenges in seven weeks and last weekend decorated the Humber Bridge with bunting made by Girl Guides.
Blue Peter needed a model of the bridge to demonstrate in miniature the life- sized challenge.
Student Bethany Brown, whose father, George, built the bridge out of 125,000 matchsticks, was delighted.

She said: "It was fantastic meeting Helen. I am really proud that my dad's bridge is going to be on Blue Peter."
The model bridge, which is almost 9ft long and 2ft tall, is on display in the school's new building.
The matchstick model includes miniature cars and dog walkers.
Blue Peter is on at 4.45pm on Thursday.
