A YOUNG rugby fan has turned to the kitchen to raise money for the Warrington Wolves Charitable Foundation and St Barnabas Church.

Daniel King, aged 10, from Dallam, raised more than £100 for his selected charities by selling cakes he had baked at home.

The youngster, who attends St Ann’s Primary School in Orford, was supported by younger brother Isaac, four, and mother Sharon as he met Wolfie and presented his cheque to the Wolves Foundation pitch side at The Halliwell Jones Stadium.

Daniel is a member of the 12th Warrington East Birchwood Scouts, and after achieving his first aid, hiking, cycling and adventure challenge badges, decided to take up the test of the community service challenge.

As part of the challenge, Daniel baked cakes for charity as well as helping out with St Barnabas’ Christmas fair.

Rob Croston, from the Wolves Foundation, said: “It’s a fantastic achievement for Daniel to raise money for two worthy causes in The Wolves Foundation and St Barnabas. Daniel has shown some great skill and has put his talents to great use by producing some amazing cakes. It is commendable that he has done the work off his own back.”
