A record-breaking £161.77 was raised on Monday at a cake stall in aid of the Mariama-mae pre-school in the Gambia. A group of Year 9 girls have been fund-raising for the school since last year in order to provide the African students with a breakfast each morning. The money raised will be enough to feed the children for two months. Cakes were brought in by MBA students and staff as well as volunteers from the charity and Ali Calvert, who founded the school, judged the winners of the Academy House Bake-off. First prize went to Neeve Raymond of 11 Bazin with an outrageously immaculate rainbow cake and runners-up were Mr Harvey with his purple blackberry and apple sponge and Miss Hick with her red strawberry gateau.
