Students baked up a storm as they raised money for charity.

Pupils on the Level 1 hairdressing course at TyneMet College held a cake and bake sale to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Selling their cakes to staff and students, the nine pupils and three support workers raised £142.

Joanne Hewison, head of service and business enterprises at the college, said: “The cakes that the students baked were amazing and their stocks were quickly depleted by those who wanted to support their fundraising efforts.”

The students chose to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support as the husband of Angela Lee, additional student support worker in hairdressing, is climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in September in aid of the charity.
