Three seven-year-old best friends from Gidea Park raised more than £300 from their Macmillan cake sale.

Hallie Hughes, Isla Davenport and Graciela Ruff all go to Gidea Park Primary School, and on Friday (September 28) the best friends were helped by their mums to bake cakes and sweet treats to sell to raise money for the cancer charity.

Hallie’s mum, Nikki Hughes, of Parkland Drive said that she was “chuffed” for the girls, and was extremely proud of what they had all done.

Nikki had recently told Hallie that her mum - Hallie’s grandmother - passed away from cancer (lymphoma) when Nikki was in primary school and after hearing this she wanted to raise money for a cancer charity.

She said Hallie had never been old enough to explain to her before, but once Hallie had the idea for the cake sale her two best friends jumped at the chance to help and they all baked treats that raised a grand total of £334 for Macmillan.

Nikki said: “I couldn’t believe how much they made!

“It was wonderful all the effort that they put into it, and I’m just super proud of them all.”
