Tasty treats to help SPCA
Connor Miller’s love of MasterChef will come in handy as he raises money for the SPCA this weekend.
The Whitby six-year-old will be taking part in Cupcake Day this Saturday, part of the SPCA’s fundraising programme. His mum Jenny says Connor has had a keen interest in the organisation since he was four and is now old enough to do something to help out.
“I want to raise the money to help SPCA pay for food for the animals and petrol for the vans,’’ says Connor.
It won’t be a case of mum and dad doing all the work, says Jenny, Connor being quite capable of deciding how he wants to go about fundraising.
He has decided to make icecream cone cupcakes so they will appeal to kids his own age. He will be busy making 90 later this week, to be sold for $1.50 at the entrance to Whitby Mall from 9am on Saturday.
