Northallerton students' fundraising produce sells like hot cakes
3:19pm Monday 14th October 2013 in News
YOUNG bakers have shown how to fundraise fast, after selling their charity treats at the rate of more than £10 a minute.
Students from Northallerton College spent weeks preparing for a Macmillan Cancer Support event baking hundreds of biscuits and cakes which they sold in just 20 minutes.
Students set up shop outside the school’s main hall at break time and served the baked goods along with tea and coffee. They also delivered tasty treats to staff and students around the college.
Just short of £270 was raised for the cancer charity, which the college has supported for the past 11 years since a popular teacher died from the condition.
Acting head of the Learning Zone Di Fearnside said: “The students really planned ahead and had a lot of fun. Every year someone we know seems to develop the disease and the students have researched the issue in detail to produce an impressive display.”
Corrie Hockney, 15, of Northallerton, said: “It is something which is close to our hearts. Cancer has affected lots of my relatives so anything we can do to help has to be good.”
Hannah Bowman, 15, of Thirsk, added: “We all think it is such a great charity so we were delighted to do something to help.”
