Funds the ic­ing on the cake

Pinjarra Murray Times - - NEWS -

OCEAN Road Pri­mary School stu­dents baked up a storm for The Kid’s Can­cer Project – Cup­cake 4 a Cure.

Ocean Road stu­dents, Surf Snack Can­teen staff and the school com­mu­nity made cupcakes to help raise aware­ness for child­hood and to funds for can­cer re­search.

Surf Snack can­teen man­ager Jodie Richards and vol­un­teer pas­try chef Kristy Pep­per were over­whelmed by the sup­port they re­ceived from the school com­mu­nity.

“At times we had more than 10 helpers in the kitchen and had to ex­tend our prep area to the un­der­cover area,” Ms Richards said.

School spokes­woman Na­dia Holmes said it was im­por­tant to raise aware­ness and money for re­search.

“Can­cer is the lead­ing cause of death of Aus­tralian chil­dren by dis­ease and Man­durah un­for­tu­nately has too many in­no­cent kids bat­tling child­hood can­cer,” Ms Holmes said.

Stu­dents sold their cupcakes and raised $1013.
