CHILDREN at The Firs School have cooked up a treat for charity.
The youngsters at the Newton school baked cakes and biscuits for a Bakeathon to raise funds for a children’s charity in India.
The competition was organised by sports coach Alison Cheshire and the pupils were encouraged to bake cakes or biscuits and then pay a small fee to enter.
The event raised over £300 for the Christ For All in Andra Pradesh charity, which provides education for poor children.
Entries were judged by school cooks Margaret Patino Pan and Heather Badrock.
The winners were: Kindergarten, Thomas Brennan for his Thomas the Tank Engine cake; Reception, Charlie Fearnall with his Easter nests; Year 1, Henrietta Dunlap’s rocket; Year 2, Nathan Parker with a heart-shaped carrot cake; Year 3, a wolf man by Joe Bergin; Year 4, Imogen Littler’s fairy cakes; Year 5, Harry and Roddy Balmer’s dalek creation and Year 6, John-Harvey Brook Rankin’s hedgehog.
The winners received prizes of baking sets or recipe books.
