Students use cake to double their money

 Students are celebrating after doubling their money for charity thanks to a successful bake sale held before half term.

A group of Year 8 girls spent hours of their spare time making a selection of more than 50 different flavoured cakes as part of £20 challenge.

They were given £20 and asked to try and multiply it for Children’s Hospice South West. After a discussion the girls decided baking would be the best way to raise extra money.

Thanks to their fairy cakes, chocolate crispy cakes, cupcakes, brownies, sold at 50p each, the girls managed to raise £43.35.

Their tutor, Sharon Bright, was proud of the efforts and called their cakes ‘amazing’. She said they were now making more fundraising plans including a non-uniform day and even a charity haircut.

Student Edith said: “It took us about two or three hours to make the cakes. It was a quite a while but it was worth it.”

Money raised will go to charity Children’s Hospice South West which provides hospice care for children with life-limiting conditions and their whole family across the South West.
