Children at an Abbots Langley primary school have held a cake sale to raise money for suffering animals in Australia.
The children in Roald Dahl class at Bedmond Academy, which consists of Year 4, 5 and 6 pupils, held the cake sale on Thursday, January 23 to raise money for the suffering animals which have been affected by the bush fires.
The class managed to raise £213.06, which will be sent to WWF who have set up a special fund to help the Australian animals.
Principal Miss Harri said: “I have to say that one of the highlights of my school year so far took place yesterday when we had the excellent cake sale. Right from start to finish with this event I have felt nothing but pride for the wonderful children in Roald Dahl class.
“The idea to want to raise money for a devastation that is taking place in our world right now came completely from them during their science lessons when they were researching animals from around the world. Reading about what was happening in Australia made the children want to do something in our school to help.
“From the idea of arranging a cake sale, writing letters to local companies to ask for donations, making posters, asking for volunteers and making all the bunting and decorations was down to them and what an amazing job they have done. I think you will all join me in saying a huge thank you to them for raising such an amazing amount of money.
“We would like to thank the people who have so generously donated cakes and their time to make this event a success. We would also like to say a huge thank you to ASDA in Hemel Hempstead and Simmons in Abbots Langley for their donations.”
