Greyfriars Junior School held their very own version of the popular TV show The Great British Bake Off on Monday to raise money for Children in Need.

Pupils from Reception up to Year 6 were all encouraged to bake cakes at home and bring them into school.

The cakes were judged and winners were selected for different age categories before the cakes were sold after school to raise money for Children in Need.

Assistant head teacher Claire Emery said: “The event was a huge success.

“We had a variety of different cakes from Pudsey Bear to Egypt and the River Nile. The children really put a lot of thought and effort into their entries.

“I was overwhelmed at the sheer number of cakes that were entered into the competition. It was incredibly difficult to choose the winners.”

Cakes were still being sold on Wednesday and at the time of going to press a total of £241.18 had already been raised. Later in the week, children were due to be holding stalls to raise even more money for the Children in Need coffers.

Mrs Moulton was the staff winner for her cake, while winning the children’s age categories for their cakes were Andrew Blows, Kiona Frost, Demi Hunt-Frost and Finlay Hurley.
