Sweet-toothed friends and neighbours of young Tilly Kernon and Sam Stead, have helped raise some much-needed funds for the Alan Shearer Activity Centre.

The girls held a bake sale in Tilly's front garden in West Denton Park recently, selling dozens of irresistible cakes and biscuits which proved far too tempting for anyone to pass by. The total raised from their sale came to £41.15 which the girls presented in person to Centre Manager, Rob Molineux.

'We were thrilled to receive the donation and hear how the girls had used their skills and interest in baking to raise the money,' said Rob.'They were kind enough to bring us a sample of their handiwork, too. As a token of our thanks and appreciation, we were delighted to give them a tour of the Centre, which they enjoyed very much.'
