On Saturday 1st July 2017, Samuel Turner and his friend Angel raised £50 for Cerebra at a fete at Treetops, a specialist school in Essex.
They made some delicious cakes to sell at the fete and even made a very special Cerebra cake which was of course Samuel’s favourite!
Samuel said: “In my heartfelt experience, it’s never a matter about what it means to anyone, this lovely Cerebra cake is not just to raise money for the charity, it’s about hope and capability to show that there are children around the UK that are suffering problems inside and I believe that we should help to find a solution because people might be unaware of the child’s problem.
I’m proud to make this special cake. I think some student and pupils would love the cake I made and me, my mum and my friend Angel have felt the love for being at Treetops School to help Cerebra. This does makes me, my family and my friend Angel feel so special for our great efforts since I started helping the charity at the start of 2017.”
For Samuel’s friend Angel Jolly, it was a life changing activity unlike anything she has ever experienced.
Angel said: “We all were excited to be at Treetops fate. Once we got there, we all worked hard as a team to decorate our table for the fete. At first, I thought we’re going to sell a lot of cakes. Sam and I wore the Cerebra shirt and Jacky, which is Samuel’s mum was wearing a Welsh t-shirt. Originally, the Cranberries cake went to the Bake-off competition but we didn’t win. In the end, we took part and we are all very happy.”
We’re very lucky to have fantastic fundraisers who are always willing to go the extra mile to raise funds and awareness for Cerebra.
