Morecambe schoolgirl cooks up a storm to raise £1400 for St John's Hospice
A Morecambe schoolgirl who is just six-years-old has raised £1400 for St John's Hospice by baking and selling cakes.
Amira Ratcliffe got involved in the 'Random acts of kindness' initiative at her school Torrisholme Community Primary School, but really took it to the next level as she came up with the idea to bake some cakes for friends and family to raise some money for the hospice.
Amira set about baking and family and friends put in their orders, which were delivered to the doorstep by Amira and her family.
Four weeks and lots of hours in the kitchen later, Amira had delivered cakes far and wide, including to her school friends and bringing the most amazing array of treats into school for the staff.
Her teachers were so proud of Amira's hard work and caring attitude and were thrilled to announce that she presented the hospice with an amazing £1400!
The hospice sent a t-shirt to Amira, calling her a St. John's Hospice Hero.
Deputy headteacher Sarah Price said: "What an amazing achievement - congratulations, Amira! "
