A 12-year-old girl has raised over £800 to support Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw, Cumbria’s Children’s Hospice by baking a range of cakes and sweet treats.
Earlier this year, Morven Yerbury began to bake cakes and sweet treats to sell in aid of the hospice.
Morven sold the cakes to her family, friends and people from her local village and raised £860.
Morven said: “I chose to support Eden Valley Hospice as it is my school house’s chosen charity.
“Also, a friend and neighbour inspired me to help as she explained how the charity was struggling and that she was selling marmalade to help, so I decided to bake.
“I chose to make cakes and sweet treats as I love to bake and was really pleased that everyone liked my baking, as well as being able to do something to help others.”
Morven baked eight sponges, 31 batches of fudge, 14 batches of cupcakes and nine batches of cookies bars during her fortnight of fundraising in aid of the hospice.
The money raised by Morven, her family, and everyone who purchased her cakes and sweet treats will help Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw to provide specialist care and compassion to people with life-limiting illnesses, their families, friends and carers.
