A primary school in Somerset has launched its own version of the classic Panini World Cup sticker book. Interestingly, not only the pupils but the teachers joined in this process of book-making and all the 576 players in the official album have been drawn by pupils at the Flax Bourton Primary School.

This “World Cup Sticker Book” moves me. Don’t get me wrong-I’m moved not because of the soccer players’ heroic images but for the beautiful flicker of love and care rendered by the “young authors.”

This is not the most lovely thing so far-what makes me feel the love is that, the launch of the album aims to raise money online for two bowel cancer charities: the Bobby Moore Trust and Above & Beyond. The school came up with the idea after the village lost ‘two of its most vibrant members’ to bowel cancer last year.

I’m certainly not the only one moved by the heartwarming portraits. Josh Brown, a parent at Flax Bourton Primary School, also reflected on the portraits.


“It’s a thing of beauty and we’re hoping it will find a welcome home,” Brown said.
