“I decided to do it on that specific day (March 20) because I wanted to see some children happy on my birthday, children that have problems living,” she said. “ We made lots of different stuff - big cakes, cupcakes, desserts, biscuits and brownies.”

The sale raised £142.85.

“I would like to say a big thankyou to my mum because without her help this wouldn’t be successful and also thankyou to Mrs Kendal, our head teacher who approved our bake sale,” she added.
