Jody gets her cake and sells it


TEN-YEAR-OLD Jody Mitchell from Bel­mont, on Bray's South­ern Cross, gen­er­ously de­cided to hold a cake sale last week to raise money for the Ir­ish Cancer So­ci­ety.

The kind-hearted girl, who goes to school in Kil­macanogue, wanted to do some­thing for the char­ity be­cause she had lost her grand­dad to Cancer, and had a friend ill with the disease also.

Her par­ents Cathy and Bobby were there on the day to su­per­vise, and were de­lighted to wel­come friends, neigh­bours and fam­ily into their home for the event. Jody did all the bak­ing her­self, with a lit­tle help from her chef Mum, and was thrilled to raise in the re­gion of €300, along with rais­ing the flour to make cakes, buns and other treats. It was a very busy day and ev­ery­one who came along con­trib­uted some­thing to an ex­cel­lent cause.

Dy­lan Ber­ming­ham, Rhys Walsh, Jodie Mitchell, Andrew Giles, front: Conor Giles, Ben Mitchell and Eoghan Giles pic­tured at Jodie’s Cake Sale in aid of Cancer Re­search in Bel­mont on Daf­fodill Day.
