“The school makes such a dif­fer­ence to the lives it touches. We are de­lighted to be host­ing this event to help raise funds while hav­ing some fun and a piece of cake at the same time.

The event is set to return an­nu­ally and we are re­ally ex­cited about mak­ing this year even more suc­cess­ful and looking for­ward to tast­ing some great cakes too.”
