Southport teenager follows in Grandmother's fundraising footsteps

A fundraiser from Southport who works closely with a local cancer research charity has inspired her granddaughter to hold her 1st ever charity cake sale.  13 year old Isobel Cutts, a pupil at Greenbank High School, Southport, will hold the cake sale to raise money for North West Cancer Research, which funds life saving research in the region.

On Sunday, 25 June 2017, Isobel will team up with her grandmother, Olive Cutts, who heads up the Southport based fundraising group for North West Cancer Research. Members of the fundraising group will help by baking a variety of cakes to be sold including lemon Drizzle, chocolate fudge and a range of other delicious flavours.

A committed Girl Guide, Isobel will hold the cake sale as part of her ambition to receive the Baden Powell Challenge Award, which is the highest accolade a Guide can achieve. This is not the 1st time she has joined forces with her grandmother, this Easter she helped to raise ₤100 for North West Cancer Research by selling knitted Easter chicks filled with chocolate.  Isobel said:- "I'm really excited for the cake bake on Sunday. Me and my Grandma have been promoting the event over the past few weeks by giving out posters in the local area so we hope lots of people will come.  My Grandma and the other members of her fundraising group have helped me out by offering to bake cakes for me to sell. I want as many cakes as possible so I can raise lots of money for the charity."

North West Cancer Research has fundraising groups all over the North West who help the charity continue to fund life saving cancer research. The charity offers funding to the University of Liverpool and over the next 5 years has pledged ₤13 million to research.  Sara Cooper, Committee Engagement and Events Executive, North West Cancer Research, said:- "Isobel has put a lot of work into organising her cake bake event, we hope the sale goes well and that she manages to sell lots of cakes. She is a great example of a young person giving up her time to support our charity and we hope others will be encouraged to follow suit."

The cake sale will take place from 10:30am to 1:00pm, on Sunday, 25 June 2017, on Isobel's drive at:- 15 Lynton Road, Hillside in Southport.
