Star Bakers at the Junior School’s Charity Bake Off
On 24th and 25th September, children at Stamford Junior School (Years 3, 4, 5 and 6) showcased their best baking skills at ‘The great Stamford Junior Bake off’ in order to raise money in support of Macmillan Cancer Support.
The children were asked to produce their signature bakes and a dazzling array of cakes, biscuits, cupcakes and more was produced. They were then sold in a bake sale after school on the Friday and by the Stamford Junior School Parents Association during their Macmillan Coffee morning. Mrs Richardson- a Stamford Junior School member of staff- made a spectacular ‘Tardis’ cake, which was raffled and proceeds given to the final total.
The cakes were all judged and the winners from Key Stage 1 and 2 will each receive a prize of a ‘Star Baker Apron.’ The event raised a hugely impressive total of £865.28.
Emma Spridgen, Class Teacher and Charities Co-ordinator of Stamford Junior School, said “The School places a keen emphasis on the importance of charitable giving and it is great to see the students participating in this fun and creative way whilst raising a significant amount of money for this great cause.”
