After seeing the picture of the Carers’ Centre minibus with its tyres stolen, 7-year-old Finley knew he had to take action. He decided to hold a cake sale at his primary school in Bishop Sutton to raise funds for young carers and help get the bus repaired.
Finley’s family and school jumped on board with the idea, and with the help of the school PTA, Finley’s cake sale was a huge success. He raised £200 for the Carers’ Centre!
Finley said: “It was a lot of fun, lots of people helped and were really happy to come to the cake sale. I saw the photograph of the minibus and wanted to do something to help. The school does a lot of fundraising so I asked if we could do the cake sale for the Carers’ Centre.”
Finley’s mum Kate, who works at the Carers’ Centre, said:
“I’m really proud of him for deciding to do that for others and also very grateful of the PTA who helped massively both with time and effort baking. There were some amazing cakes on sale!”
Finley added: “Thank you to everyone for giving money and especially to everyone who donated the delicious cakes for the sale!”
We are super proud of Finley’s initiative and say a big thank you to him for his hard work.
