Kudos Blends help volunteering students raise over £500

Two local students from Lacon Childe School in Cleobury Mortimer are aiming to raise £4000 each to take part in a humanitarian project in Tanzania in Summer 2019.

In true ‘The Apprentice’ style, the fifteen year old students, Harvey Locke and Charlie Brown were tasked with running a bakery business for a day. The challenge was to secure customers in advance, bake as many cupcakes as they could in one day and decorate each cake to a Halloween theme.

A competition for the best decorated cake was judged by key members of Kudos staff with a donation by Kudos of £200.

With guidance from our experienced bakers, Seb Penney and Natalie Narey, the students enjoyed learning the processes involved in making large batches of cakes. Their siblings, Thomas Brown and Jessica Locke, both aged thirteen, joined them on the day to provide a helping hand.

Cupcake decorations were kindly donated by Orchard Valley Foods and Nimbus Foods and the students managed to produce an impressive 300 cupcakes, with a total of £520 proceeds from the competition.

Along with other students from Lacon Childe, Harvey and Charlie will spend four weeks helping to transform a dilapidated school, construct housing and monitor endangered animals.

To help Harvey and Charlie make a real difference to an impoverished community, you can donate via their justgiving pages:
