Bake Sale at Shiplake College in aid of Daisy’s Dream
Despite the less-than-favourable weather that has hounded the UK recently, the Lower School of Shiplake College gathered outside to put on a bake sale, all in aid of Daisy’s Dream.
Parents and staff had kindly baked and bought a smorgasbord of delicious baked goods to sell to pupils and fellow staff members. An annual bake sale, the College’s Lower School choose a charity and then give up their break times to help sell cakes, in order to raise money for their charity. This year, the charity of choice was Daisy’s Dream, a local trust that supports children and their families who have been affected by life threatening illness, or bereavement of someone close to them.
Donations of cakes, flapjacks, brownies and cookies came flooding in, and the students were well stocked when the rest of the school descended at break time. For those who were classroom-bound, willing pupils grabbed trays and headed off to bring the cake sale to them.
Summer diets were all but forgotten as the sweet treats were devoured, and the College succeeded in raising over £260 for Daisy’s Dream.
