KIND-HEARTED pupils swapped the classroom for the kitchen and baked cakes to support the hospice.

Six generous youngsters from Sacred Heart RC Primary School cooked up a treat with their butterfly cakes, crispy cakes and cookies.

And the youngsters then sold them to staff and fellow pupils at the school and raised £61 for Hartlepool & District Hospice.

The kind group of youngsters was made up of Year 6 pupils Sophie Goy and Kaitlyn Eade along with Year 4 pupils Neve Wilson, Jennifer Waterman, Emily Barnard and Nicole Stabler.

They all have relatives who have been cared for by staff at the Wells Avenue-based hospice in the past and were inspired to support the facility.

In recognition of their excellent efforts, hospice staff visited the school and presented the girls with certificates.

Janice Forbes, community fundraiser at the hospice, said: “It was lovely to go to the school and meet the girls and give them a fundraising certificate.

“They are a great example of how young people can support the hospice and become involved in their local community in a positive way.

“I would like to say a big thanks to all of the girls and say well done.”
