PUBLISHED: 13:09 22 November 2010
STUDENTS and staff at Linton Village College (LVC) have raised £290 for the BBC’s Children in Need appeal by holding the Great Linton Bake Off.
Pupils, parents and teachers were all busy in the run-up to the event and over 100 entries were received, including cakes, scones, Victoria sponge, flapjack, bread, pizza and sausage rolls.
The entries were tasted by a panel of judges including LVC principal Caroline Derbyshire, head of food technology Jenny Pullin, Joel Palmer of the Crown Inn, Linton, Louise Cummings, editor of Style magazine, and Lynette Olway and Pat Hughes of Linton WI.
After much deliberation, they announced the winners:
Under 11 – Victoria Gedny, age nine, for her Pudsey fairy cakes
11-16 – Lauren Ecclestone, age 11, for her Pudsey sponge cake
16-60 – Amanda and Holly Clay for their cupcakes
Over 60 – Angela Read for her focaccia bread
All of the entries were then sold off at the Great Linton Tea Party in the school hall and Lauren Ecclestone’s Pudsey sponge cake was auctioned for £20 for Children in Need.
