STAFF at De Aston School have been cooking up funds for charity by taking part in a baking competition.

The Big Easter Cake Competition saw contestants pay £3 to enter a cake, and others paying £2 for the privilege of tasting them and voting on their favourite.

Receptionist Lorraine Kuhl topped the tasting votes with her chocolate fudge cake, while teaching assistant Jan Norburn won the prize for best presentation.

Lorraine has also been baking a different cake each week and selling off slices.

The money raised from this, plus the Easter baking competition, totals more than £100 to date.

The money raised will go to J.A.C.K.S. (Jack About Carers Kids Support), the recently-formed charity in memory of two-year-old Jack Huskisson, the grandson of Vanessa and Stuart Proctor, who both work at the school.

As reported previously in the Mail, Jack was a medical mystery, under the care of 27 different professionals but with no diagnosis. The charity aims to provide support for children who have disabilities and additional needs, with no diagnosis or an undetermined diagnosis, and their carers.

“We would like to thank all the staff at De Aston for taking part in the Big Easter Bake Off and for all their thoughts and kindness at this very sad time,” said Vanessa.

“Jack was a very special little boy who will be greatly missed by all.”
