FUNDRAISERS have successfully raised hundreds of pounds with a charity cake sale – supporting the fight against cancer.

Pupils from Priory School in Fawcett Road, Southsea recently held a cake sale at the school, raising a total of £700.77 for charity.

Along with a cake decorating competition which the students took part in, cakes were also donated to the school by Tesco in Fratton, the Co-Op in Fawcett Road and Sainsbury’s Portsmouth.

Students, parents, carers and staff were encouraged to bake and donate as well as bring in lots of loose change to buy cakes on the day.

Former student and current Portsmouth South MP Stephen Morgan also came along to judge the cake decorating competition.

Headteacher Stewart Vaughan reiterated his thanks to the school community for getting behind the annual event, which supports Macmillan Cancer Support – as well as praising the high standard of entries in the cake decorating competition, saying staff were ‘blown away’ by the artwork.

He said: ‘Fundraising is an important part of our school ethos and our Macmillan bake sale kicks off our fundraising year.

‘We are delighted to be able to send Macmillan this generous community donation.’

Priory School has also thanked Stephen Morgan MP for attending the event.
