Pupils from the Prep School raised a staggering £360 though a charity cake sale last week. Prep 6’s Megan Brown and Daisy Watts, with support from their friends raised the money for two charities close to their hearts, one local, one global.
Daisy wanted to raise money to ease the plight of children in Africa and Megan raised money for the Joel Prince Starlight Fund.
Joel was the son of Megan’s family friends. He was diagnosed with an atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumour on his spine on July 10 2014. It was just two months after his second birthday. Sadly, Joel lost his battle and passed away on Sunday 25 January 2015 at home. All funds raised for the Joel Prince Starlight Fund will support atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumour research through CCLG. Megan and her friends gave a very moving presentation about Joel in an assembly ensuring the whole prep school community was on board.
There were a fantastic number of cakes of all shapes and sizes sold on the day. Thank you to all those who contributed.
