Children at Ruskin Junior School in Wellingborough have raised money for charity by holding a cake sale.

Youngsters from the Ruskin Avenue school’s Year 3 class made their own cakes and sold them at school to raise money for the Wellingborough division of the Salvation Army.

They presented the money to local Salvation Army leader Major Paul Church when he visited their classroom recently.

The initiative was organised as part of a school topic on Christianity.

They decided to raise funds for the Salvation Army after a previous school visit by Major Church.

A school spokesman said: “As part of the topic Christianity in Action, Year 3 children have been looking at how Christians help others less fortunate than themselves.

“Through discussions in class and a visit from Major Paul the children decided to hold a cake sale to raise money for the Salvation Army.

“The children decided to make their own cakes and sell them at school.

“All the children took part and raised a staggering amount of £68.”
