St Mary’s Bake-Off

What a successful day! Thank you to everyone who baked or bought cakes, to all those who helped run the day – especially our marvellous PTA – and to everyone who came to buy and eat the cakes: what a selection there was! We raised a fabulous £433.18 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
