Kind-hearted staff and students at two Pendle schools have helped raise sweet amounts for a cancer charity.

A bake sale at West Craven High School helped raise £77.29 for Macmillan Cancer Support while a school house head-to-head bake off competition at Colne Primet Academy yielded £109.

At the Colne academy, pupils were inspired by the national World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, and the cake competition was run over two weeks to encourage healthy competitiveness.

The event saw staff and students from each house – Pegasus, Lacerta, Aquila and Draco – go head-to-head in a bake-off contest, with staff being judged in week one, and students in week two. Overall, Pegasus took home the winning gong for their culinary creations.

At West Craven, schoolchildren organised a bake sale, rallying together with staff to donate a delicious selection of cakes, biscuits and donuts. They then willingly gave up their break and lunch time to sell the cakes to the eager students.
