12 Mawer raise £123 in aid of Muscular Dystrophy
A bake sale was one of the first ideas for a charity event suggested by the students in 12 Mawer. Charlotte Hoole and Malana Cutler offered to take charge of the bake sale itself, set up the stall, create posters and bring in the things to sell. After that, they asked if anyone else was willing to bake and bring things in for the stall and a number of students also volunteered to help.
The tutor agreed to donate the money raised to supporting those with Muscular Dystrophy, which is a group of diseases that cause progressive weakness and loss in muscle mass. They spent their £10 on a money float for change for the stall. All goods they sold at the stall were brought in for free by volunteers within the tutor who kindly offered to bake something to sell. And with the number of people who volunteered to bring something in, the total amount of cakes and biscuits donated was enough to cover two whole tables!
The bake sale did tremendously well overall, with two thirds of the goods sold by noon after starting at 9:30 that morning. In total, the amount the bake sale raised was over £123.
