St Albans Mayor Praises Star Bakers for Cake Sale at Charity Cycle Ride Event
St Albans Mayor Councillor Iqbal Zia praised St Albans Girls’ School Rotary Interact club for their sterling fund raising efforts at the St Albans Charity Cycle Ride event. Year 9 student Anisah Choudhuri, and Year 8 students Ila Cibu and Carys MacIntyre sold a fabulous selection of homemade cakes throughout the day from 9am until 2pm and raised over £300 for their selected charities, MS, Connected and The Donkey Sanctuary. Student Anisah said ‘It was a nice fun day out for the families in St Albans. I felt privileged and proud to be there in my Rotary tabard’.
Rotary Youth mentor Lavinia Hale said ‘This is the third year that STAGS Interact Rotary club have held their cake stall at this event and it really gets more popular with each year. People now recognise our stall and acknowledge they can rely on us to provide a range of quality home baked cakes’. Many thanks go to Year 7 and 8 Pupils and their families for generously donating all the delicious edible sweet treats which were so well received by the local visitors.
The next event that the Rotary Interact club are planning next week is continuing their End Polio Now campaign. After school on Thursday 23rd of May, they will be selling purple candy floss, sweets and drinks as well as the official purple crocuses.
*If you would like to donate to the End Polio Now campaign, you can do so via the School Gateway until Sunday the 27th of May. Any funds raised will be tripled by the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, so any contribution will make a BIG difference.
