Cake sale at King Edward VI Grammar Schools helps WaterAid

Members of MADSOC (Medical and Dental Society of Kevigs) and members of the Sixth Form participated in a Charity Halloween themed Cake Sale.

There were some terrifying designs of cupcakes displayed including mummies, eyeballs, brains, headless men, ghosts, bats and many more which resulted in the sale being a huge success with all cakes being sold out and raising a grand total of £116.38.

The money raised is to be donated to WaterAid to help in Ethiopia, Africa’s fourth largest and one of the poorest countries worldwide.

WaterAid began funding projects in Ethiopia in 1983 and now works with local non-governmental organisations (NGOs), the local private sector and local and regional government departments.

It provides safe water, sanitation and hygiene education using appropriate and sustainable technologies and influences decision-makers on water and sanitation.

The following students deserve immense credit for their ideas and involvement which enabled the event to be successful: Charlotte Manton, Dania Farhan, Frankie Ashmore, Funmi Wilson, Jade McCandless, Mary Ashmore, Shan Shan To, Zukhruf Khan, Abdullah Barlas, Abigail MacDonald, Bethany Rudkin, Charlotte Ottaway, Georgina Rudkin, Lauren Vickers and Nicola Moss.

Maheen Siddiqui, Organiser and leader of MADSOC, also thanked were Mr Taylor, Mrs Roy and everybody who came and supported the event by buying the cakes.
