Jack, 9, holds charity cake sale
A SCHOOLBOY from Burnham arranged a cake sale to raise more than £500 for the hospital which cared for his late grandmother.
Nine-year-old Jack Millier, who attends St Andrews School, took it upon himself to arrange the charity event for the oncology unit at Weston Hospital.
Jack's grandmother lost her fight with cancer in February so he planned the date of the sale to be exactly six months since the day she passed away.
Rachel Mackenzie, Jack's mother, said: “Jack has arranged his cake sale all by himself. I am very very proud of what he has done.
“He delivered over 80 leaflets to houses nearby and also sent invitations out to school friends before they broke up from school.
“The oncology unit at the hospital helped my mum so much, they were always kind and caring and always did their best for her. My mum and dad raised lots of money for the oncology unit which is why Jack wanted to do something himself.”
Companies also donated raffle prizes of a professional cake, two family tickets to Brean bird gardens, a meal for two with wine in the Rosewood, a £10 gift card from Asda and some bottles of wine from Lidl.
