On Friday 2nd February, students at MPW London raised £244.20 in aid of Homes of Promise in Uganda. Homes of Promise is a London-based charity with a mission to rescue children from a life on the streets in Kampala, Uganda’s capital.

Our student volunteers set up two stands – one in Queen’s Gate and the other at Queen’s Gate House (QGH). As you will read below from some of the students, the results were mixed with some students setting high expectations for themselves. They can be proud that they have raised a significant sum for a worthwhile cause.

We did a bake sale to raise money for the charity Homes of Promise in Uganda. We sold cupcakes and donuts which did quite well and were split in to two groups: one sold the treats in the boarding building and the other in the main school building. The one in the school building did far better as more people walked by. We raised £244.20 which was less than last time.

The school charity bake sale was a huge success! My classmates and I worked very hard to bake and sell the most delicious cakes to raise money for a great cause. The most popular sweets were doughnuts. It was great to see everyone come together to support this event. We even had a friendly competition to see who could sell the most doughnuts. I am proud to say that our efforts paid off and we raised a significant amount of money for Homes of Promise, a charity in Kampala, Uganda. We sold out before school ended which was a surprise. It feels good to be able to make a positive impact while having fun with friends. I can’t wait to do it again next time!

Last Friday we did a Bake sale, as our part of volunteering. In total we raised £244.20 which was much lower than we expected, so we are a bit disappointed. We sold in two places this time: one in the main building and one in the boarding house. As we thought, the cakes in the 91 building sold out very fast and at lunch we already were packing up and cleaning space around us. But in the QGH we thought people would buy a lot. We also hoped people would buy something during lunch, but overall, we didn’t sell much there. By the end we started giving some for free, because nobody wanted to carry any cakes back home!

This bake sale was very successful and very happy. I can help people in need. We are very proud.
