Through a cake sale and a fun run, three Papplewick boys raised funds for Crohn's in Childhood Research Association and the Bethany Orphanage.
Charity cake sale
A year 6 day pupil at Papplewick, showed off his entrepreneurial skills on Saturday by organising a cake sale to raise money for a cause that is close to his heart , Crohn’s in Childhood Research Association (CICRA).
The boy concerned, a sufferer himself, not only thought up the idea, but baked every single cake himself to sell to parents after the family Chapel Service at the school, and set up a table in the Entrance Hall to sell his wares. The Charity CIRCA is dedicated to creating a much needed wider understanding of Crohn’s Disease/Ulcerative Colitis, in children and young people.
The cakes ranged from deliciously naughty cupcakes , fresh strawberry and cream sandwich cakes right through to a chocolate delight cake named Rocky Road ! A total of over £300 was raised for CICRA.
Glynn Shefford Memorial Run
Two boys from Papplewick School took part once again in the Glynn Shefford Memorial Run in Windsor Great Park on Sunday, 29 September, to raise funds for the Bethany Orphanage in Uganda.
After running in the same race last year, the funds raised by the boys, totalling £1500, bought tables for the children to work at and eat their food, as well as enabling the construction of a library. The money was also used to start the building of a sick bay, which the boys are hoping to help complete with the support they achieve for this year’s run.
This year, the boys raised another £750 for the children in Uganda.
