Children from William Davis Primary School have contributed pictures of the Gherkin for a new cookbook in aid of the NSPCC.

The Swiss Re Cookbook for the NSPCC includes 82 pictures of one of London’s most iconic buildings by pupils from the school in Bethnal Green - one to accompany each recipe.

The building was chosen as the subject of the pictures because the book has been sponsored by reinsurance firm Swiss Re, the headquarters of which are in the Gherkin. £10 from every £12.99 copy of the book sold goes straight to the NSPCC.

It is available in Waterstones in Leadenhall Market, or through the NSPCC website, here:
