Brynhyfryd school girls and friends raise cash for Macmillan from cake sale
YOUNG fundraisers have taken it upon themselves to raise money for Macmillan.
Brynhyfryd Junior School pupils Ella Hooke and Aaliyah Jones, and their little sisters Lola Hooke and Gracie Jones, decided to raise money for the charity because both of Ella's grandparents have suffered with cancer.
Ella designed leaflets and posted them to homes in Golden Grove, Treboeth, informing them of the forthcoming cake sale, and then all four, together with another friend, Eva Taylor, spent a day selling home-made cupcakes and Welsh cakes. Their efforts raised a total of £96 for the cancer charity.
Ella said: "My nanna, bampi and aunties have had cancer and I wanted to help people who are ill and chose the Macmillan charity. It was fun making cakes and we enjoyed selling them. We want to plan something else now to raise more money".

Her mum Sarah added: "Ella has been learning about her rights and wanted to help other people who are less fortunate than herself.
"We looked at lots of charities and Ella chose Macmillan as not only am I am trekking Machu Picchu this year for the charity, but Ella has close family members who have suffered from cancer. I am so proud of all the girls."
