Two pupils at St Martins School gave up their break time on Friday to raise money for charity.

Charlotte Gerrard-Davies and Jodie Rose-Leah both set up a cake stall on the school playground to raise funds for Dogs Trust.

The pair had been planning the cake sale for weeks, and spent time putting up posters around the school to raise awareness of what they were doing.

Both in Year 4, the girls were determined to raise funds for a cause close to their hearts.

Charlotte spent time helping her mum bake more than 300 cakes to be sold on Friday.

Assistant headteacher Carol Jones was pleased to see the girls’ idea work so well.

She said: “The girls are both came up with the idea of raising some money themselves.

“A cake sale always goes down well for that sort of thing – so they asked the headteacher for approval and now it’s going ahead.

“Not only have they organised it, but they have both put posters up around the school and Charlotte has helped her mum to bake 300 cakes for the school.

“It’s lovely to see both girls are so passionate about the charity they have chosen.

“St Martins School always encourage children to take initiative and to think about the community.

“It’s amazing to see it going so well – they’ve been looking forward to this for three or four weeks now.

“It’s great to see the children supporting them as well.”
