Watch out Mary Berry! Great British Bake Off fever spread through Thornhill Primary School to help raise money for a good cause.

Key stage two students have been completing baking challenges while collecting funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.

The children managed to raise £183.50 towards improving the lives of people living with cancer.

During design and technology lessons the pupils have been exploring different aspects of baking.

"During cake week children created a signature bake of cupcakes in aid of the Macmillan coffee morning which was hosted in school," said Helen Toman, office manager at Thornhill.

"Children researched their own recipes and designs and then created their masterpieces."

Parents and members of the community were invited into school to enjoy the cakes.

"The children were proud of the contributions they made to this worthwhile cause," said Mrs Toman.

Cake and coffee mornings are Macmillan's biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer. The charity's goal is to make sure no one faces cancer alone.

It provides medical, emotional, practical and financial support and campaigns for better cancer care.
