A CULINARY cop donned an apron to join in a charity cake bake.
PC Bev Sissons supervised the cooking at the University Church of England Academy in Ellesmere Port.
The Cheshire Constabulary schools liaison officer was joined by Pauline Davies, the school’s inclusion achievement tutor, and children from Years 8 and 9 to bake and decorate. Together they sold nearly 200 cakes to raise money for the Missing People charity.
PC Sissons said: “It was a good project which the kids enjoyed. Some of the icing was very colourful and that appealed to the other children when the cakes went on sale. We raised £70 very quickly.
“This charity seemed a good one for us to support. It works with police and other agencies to trace missing children and adults and its Runaway Helpline provides a link and a message-home service for people who have suddenly decided to break with their families and other ties.
“What is just as important, the line caters for children and adults who are thinking about running away.
“With children in particular, that may prevent them joining the 250,000 people who disappear – at least for a time – every year.”
PC Sissons is based at the academy and has got to know many of the 1,200 pupils well.
