Cupcakes & Care Bears to raise cash for Children in Need

18 November 2014

Generous parents from The Webber Independent School swapped an evening’s relaxation to get involved with the MK World Record attempt for the longest line of cupcakes. 

At homes across the community last Tuesday and Wednesday a dedicated group of talented parent bakers spent the evening in their kitchens whipping up batches of the officially adjudicated cupcake recipe.  

A total of 200 cakes were donated to the record attempt, with hoards more being sold in school on Friday 14th November (Children in Need Day) to raise funds for the cakesforkids nominated charities.

The record attempt was a success involving over 26K cherry topped cupcakes!

In school further fundraising activities took place throughout the day as a nod to the very well established ‘Children in Need’ day annual event.  Students accessorized their uniforms with spots and stripes, the senior school hosted a ‘staff versus students’ Dodgeball tournament and the Little GEMS children enjoyed a teddy bears picnic – with a special prize for the best dressed teddy bear!

An impressive total of £251 was raised through the cupcake sale as well as donations throughout the day for taking part in the Children in Need celebrations.

Principal Sue Vig said, “Congratulations to everyone who took part in the MK world record attempt – this initiative truly brought the community together and thank you to our parents and children specifically for contributing their delicious baking efforts.  Children in Need is a fantastic charity and students very much enjoyed getting involved with the special fundraising activities.”
