Generous students bake up a storm at John Holt centre

Warrington Guardian: Generous students bake up a storm at John Holt centre Generous students bake up a storm at John Holt centre

GENEROUS students taking part in the Warrington Youth Club’s National Citizen Service project baked up a storm to raise money for the John Holt Cancer Support Foundation.

The group of 11 put Mary Berry to shame after selling out of cakes within hours of opening the stall.

The teenagers from Priestley College and the Warrington Collegiate have also organised a series of fundraising events including a sponsored silence, which raised more than £500.

Hannah Smith, from Penketh, said: “Everyone has been touched in one way or another by someone who has had cancer so we just wanted to raise as much money as we can for the foundation.”

The group have also planned a sponsored stay up, a raffle and bag-packing at Sainsbury’s.

ah yes, that old phrase 'bake up a storm'.

Reminds me of my favourite one: 'Too many bakers spoil the broth'.

In doing this they also champion John's name. he was a community champion very much a worker behind the scenes who didn't require prestigious rewards or Royal honours and public recognition. I am sure he enjoyed possibly such public highlights in the local press and at the Disability Awareness Day. Knowing John was for me a real privilege and a truly real example for these young people who are becoming if not already good citizens.

Yes. Just my odd humour taking the Michael out of the headline as that should be 'cooking up a storm'.
