Charity drive is wee buns for Scarva group

A BAKING competition takes place in Scarva on Friday (May 11) to raise money for children with cancer.

St Matthew’s Sunday School in the village is behind the venture in the Orange Hall, with the fun also including a table quiz and raffle.

Money raised from the event will go towards the Sunday School and Cash for Kids, which has teamed up with Clic Sargent to raise funds for the ‘Homes from Home’ appeal.

Every week two children and young people in Northern Ireland hear the devastating news they have cancer and the homes appeal aims to provide houses in Belfast which are within walking distance of the hospital.

This will ease both the financial and emotional strain on travelling parents whose children need specialist treatment.

The evening will begin with a baking competition which is open to all ages and there will also be an under 12s section. Categories are ‘farmhouse’, ‘cakes’, ‘traybakes and cookies’, ‘cupcakes’ and ‘desserts’ and certificates will be presented to placings in each category.

Judges include Fiona from Drumsallagh Cakes, Banbridge, and Marcel from the Cosy Teapot, Tandragee.

Entry is £5 per adults and £3 for under 12s for any number of items entered in any or all of the categories.

Prize of a baking hamper has been donated by the children of the Sunday School and around 30 raffle prizes have been provided by local businesses and individuals.

Tea and coffee will be provided during the evening and everyone will have the opportunity to sample the home baking on display.
