Hallowe'en Charity Bake Sale

London A36

The MPW Year 10 Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award group of 2015/16 held a bake sale for the volunteering part of their Bronze award course. Making the most of it being Hallowe’en, the tables were groaning under the weight of ghoulish treats to raise money for Unicef. Year 10 chose Unicef as they wanted to help with the refugee crisis and at the end of the day a fantastic £400 pounds was raised for charity.

They all had a lot of fun baking cakes, cookies and muffins for the sale. They spent a few weeks planning the idea and in addition to the cakes they made themselves Nikan and JJ visited some local shops and acquired generous donations from them to sell. The local shops that helped by donating various items were Jeff de Bruges, Maitre Choux, La Pâtisserie des Rêves, Krispy Kreme and Ben’s Cookies. We are extremely grateful for their support.

From the feedback that the group gave about participating in this event, it is clear that they really enjoyed working together as a team to raise money and awareness for an important charitable cause. They felt it was important to remember people in need, especially children, and were justifiably proud of their hard work.

It was an incredibly successful day and the group would also like to thank the many students and staff who supported the event by buying from the stand throughout the day.
