Kirkhilll Primary Class 4 bake sale raises funds for ERGoodCauses whilst educating children along with encouraging entrepreneurship

We all had a vote to see what we could do to raise money for a charity. We got into groups and wrote down things we could do. We decided to have a bake sale. In ICT we looked up some recipes we could use, we decided on traybakes to make it easier to cook. We voted and decided to do a malteser cake and mars bar cake. Then we moved on to deciding the date. We decided on the 19th of June and wrote a persuasive letter to our head teacher asking her for £25 to buy ingredients. She gave us the £25 and we bought the ingredients. We had a practice run so we could make any changes and taste the cakes before we sold them.

We invited some of our parents and family members in to our classroom for a cake sale. We served them drinks and a piece of the cakes we had baked in return for a donation. At the end of the afternoon we counted the money raised and we found out we had made £138.64. We had to return the money we had borrowed from our head teacher so that meant we ended up with £113.64 which we could send to East Renfrewshire Good Causes. We were so pleased that we had made enough money to create 4 care packages with some left over too J.
