Baking enthusiast Sabrina Downton, 11, raises more than £500 for MS centre
Sabrina Downton, 11, who attends Wycliffe Prep School raised £500 for the multiple sclerosis therapy centre in Quedgeley by selling tea and cakes in the orchard at her house in Rodborough
FUTURE Great British Bake Off contestant Sabrina Downton, 11, has raised more than £500 for the multiple sclerosis therapy centre in Quedgeley.
Sabrina, who is in Year 7 at Wycliffe Prep, used her skills as a keen baker to host a tea room at her home in Houndscroft, Rodborough to raise money for charity.
“I really enjoy baking and wanted to host a tearoom for a while but I didn’t want to keep the money for myself so I chose to give the money to the therapy centre as my auntie Kate suffers from MS,” said Sabrina, who also enjoys horse riding and swimming.
“I picked a lovely sunny day in August so that we could hold the tearoom outside in the orchard and my sister Georgina and some of my friends helped out by waitressing.
“I made scones served them with clotted cream and jam and several cakes which I served on vintage china with pots of tea and coffee.
Sabrina, who attended Longney Primary School, visited the MS centre in Quedgeley to hand over a cheque for £501.
“It was really great to get to visit the centre as I got to meet a number of people who are affected by MS and I also got to see what my money was going towards,” said Sabrina, whose favourite subject at school is design technology.
“The staff at the centre were totally amazed that an 11-year-old child could raise so much money but I really enjoyed it and am already thinking about when to host my next tea room.”
