Children at a primary school rolled up their sleeves to bake for charity.

Wolfson Hillel Primary School, in Chase Road, Southgate, took part in ‘bake a difference’ for the care home group Jewish Care’s ‘great Jewish bake day’.

As nursery children iced biscuits and cupcakes, older children baked brownies for a school bake sale.

The bake day took place across the country and the money raised will be used to organise tea parties for older and isolated people in the community as well as raising money for charity Jewish Care.

Jewish Studies teacher at the Southgate school Orah Stoller said: “We were very excited to get involved in the bake day this year and every last crumb of cake was eaten at our bake sales. The children really enjoyed taking part and many of our pupil’s families have been touched by the support of this wonderful organisation.”

Daniel Carmel-Brown, director of fundraising and marketing at Jewish Care said: “The wonderful thing about the great Jewish Bake Day is everyone can get involved in some way or another from the kids who made and sold cakes raising a few pounds to help support Jewish Care’s work to the larger Bake Day events bringing schools and care homes together.

“We want to thank every single person who got involved, every penny we raise is important to us and we hope that along the way lots of fun was had and cakes were eaten.”
