BUDDING young bakers at a Lancing school have been hard at work baking cakes for a local charity.

Pupils at the Sir Robert Woodard Academy in Upper Boundstone Lane, Lancing, worked late into Wednesday evening, hand preparing cakes which they sold during break and lunch times on Thursday.

The money they made form the sale was donated to local children’s cancer charity Freddysmile.

After considering many charities the students chose Freddysmile as the cause they would like to raise money for.

The sale was a great success and raised £33.66 during break time alone, meaning that by lunch time all the cakes were sold out.

A spokesman for the school said: “The charities committee have many ideas for continuing their fundraising for Freddysmile and look forward to supporting them for the rest of the academic year.”

In other baking news, staff at Boundstone Nursery School, Children and Family Centre, also in Upper Boundstone Lane, will hold their own bake-off on Tuesday, November 5, from 10am to 12pm.

Staff have been asked to bring their best home-baking efforts to raise money for cancer charity Macmillan.

Boundstone’s business manager Claire Leonard said: “We have some great bakers at Boundstone who are looking forward to showing off their skills and we’re hoping to see lots of happy, hungry faces in the café next Tuesday”.
