Around 50 parents and families baked a range of cakes which were sold at the event. The rest were given out to children later in the day.

They raised nearly £100 from the initial morning sales, and hope to collect more from those sold in the afternoon.

Assistant headteacher Alison Warren said: “It went really well and so far we have raised £95.”

She added: “It was lovely to see everyone coming together to share their creations for such a good cause.”
