Would-be bakers and their parents raised more than £1,000 for charity when they hosted a school-wide baking competition last month.

On Friday September 29, parents, grandparents and friends of Hylands Primary School in Granger Way, Romford, came together to host their very own Cake-Off and raise money for MacMillan Cancer Care.

A school spokeswoman said: “The school hall looked like something out of Charlie And The Chocolate Factory; there were so many cakes donated that we couldn’t actually find the room to display all of them.

“We were very pleased to welcome the mayor of Havering to the event, and she was amazed by the quality of Hylands’ ‘Cake-Off’ entries by the children as well as the sheer number of cakes donated.

“I am very proud to announce that on the day we raised £1190.98, which is a fantastic amount of money for such a worthy cause.”
