TWO five-year-olds from Clutton were so upset by the images of the Pakistan floods that they grabbed their mixing bowls and starting baking to raise money to help.
Hollie Parry and her friend Keira Smith both aged five have been raising money for the children in Pakistan affected by the floods after seeing the images on the television.
Hollie’s mum, Melanie Baker said: “Hollie had seen the images of the children on television being carried by their parents through the water and she asked me what was happening.
“I explained to her in layman's terms what was going on in Pakistan and said people over here were fundraising to help them.
“Then Hollie asked me what she could do to help.”
Hollie and her friend Keira decided to bake and sell cakes.
Melanie said: “We spent a day in the kitchen baking and decorating around 50 cup cakes to sell.
“We then went around knocking on doors in the village selling the cakes.”
The Clutton C of E Primary School children managed to raise £41.69, by selling their first batch of cakes.
They are not the only children in the village raising funds for those in Pakistan. Tilly Smith aged 11, and Matty Bremner aged 13 who also live in Clutton, have just started a car washing business and they are also donating 25% of their profit to the DEC fund for Pakistan.
Melanie said: “I am really proud of them. I was surprised and pleased when Hollie was so concerned about the children in Pakistan.
“We have already deposited the money in the bank – the staff gave Hollie a piggy bank.”
