Stand takes the cake

Four enterprising Leamington School students have put their baking talents to good use, setting up a bake stand and raising almost $500 for Kids in Need Waikato.

The girls, Taniya Vave, Mikayla Walker, Taofi Atoni and Emma Borsos put on the sweet treats for their schoolmates over two Fridays, with some baking done at home and some at school.

“We just thought it would make a difference to them (the kids going into foster care)”, Year 6 Taniya said.

According to the girls, the red velvet cupcakes were the biggest sellers, but it was hard to pick a standout – it all looked delicious.

Kids in Need organiser Linda Roil said continues to be “blown away” by the community support Kids in Need is receiving, paying tribute to the enterprising students who wanted to pay it forward to kids less fortunate than themselves.
