A group of 12-year-old boys from Pinner have raised over £800 for Harrow Foodbank by organising a cake sale on Elm Park Road.
On Bank Holiday Monday on May 3, the four boys – Leon, Tommy, Sam and Bailey – led a bake sale as part of their Bar Mitzvah celebrations to raise money for local charity.
The four families sold cakes, biscuits and even dog treats to support charity and celebrate coming of age.
The boys chose to support Harrow Foodbank because of how pivotal the charity has been to the local community during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Leon’s mother, Karen Kinsley said: “It was an amazing success, all the neighbours came together, one person had one slice of lemon cake and made a £20 donation. We started a local WhatsApp group when COVID-19 started and since then there has been a real community feel.”
The cake sale was a positive feel-good event and the boys plan to present the £800 donation to Harrow Food Bank as soon as they can.
