Royal Wootton Bassett Academy's Sixth Form students have been raising vital funds for Macmillan Cancer Support by using their baking skills.

A group of aspiring chefs from Royal Wootton Bassett Academy honed their baking skills to produce an array of delicious cakes and biscuits to sell during the morning break to the general school community.

The total money raised for the charity is £112.

The students, who included Ariana Shafie, Cheuk Tse Koon, and Aaron McNeill, said they were thrilled to raise funds for Macmillan Support - a charity that provides important emotional, physical and financial support for those dealing with a cancer diagnosis.

Ariana said: “This is an annual event for us, and we baked a majority of the cakes on Wednesday ready for the coffee morning. We actually sold out, which is amazing. We had a lot of fun as well as raising money for such an important charity.”

Katharine Salmon, Head of Sixth Form said: “We are very proud of our students. We actively encourage them to get involved with the local community and charity work.

"They also support our wider school community, enhancing the learning and development of our younger students through Student Ambassador Programmes. These are just some of the ways in which our Sixth Form students develop into adults that we are proud to call our own.” 

The Sixth Form team say they have a long record of charity involvement and their chosen charity for this school year is ActionAid - an international charity that works with women and girls living in poverty.

RWBA Sixth form has its annual open day on Wednesday 12 October, from 5 - 7.30pm.
