Marie Harvey, a Teaching Assistant at Weston Mill Primary School, had seen the Bake for Heroes ad on a Facebook page, and thought "what a wonderful idea". They have many Forces children in the school, and some of the staff members are also ex Armed Forces personnel. Marie took the idea to the Headteacher, Mrs Nettleship, to ask for permission to run the event, and without hesitation, Mrs Nettleship agreed.
Plans got underway, and the H.M.S. Heroes children were all given a letter to take home to their parents asking if they would donate cakes for the event. School staff members also baked cakes for the day. All the children invited their parents to the event, and on the 22nd April the Bake for Heroes event took place.
All the Forces children arrived early, armed with cakes and smiles, to help set up their stall.
Many parents attended, some in uniform, and a veteran who wore his medals for the occasion. The children were extremely proud. The children sold cakes before and after school, and it turned out to be a huge success, raising £150 for Help for Heroes.
We at Help for Heroes would like to thank everyone who got involved. We are very proud of everybody's amazing effort and contribution - WELL DONE!
