Castlebrae cakes raise hundreds for cancer care

Castlebrae school staff donated a total of £353.89 during the event

Students and staff at Castlebrae Community High School raised more than £350 in half an hour for the cancer care charity Macmillan in a coffee morning event on Friday (02 October).

Lee Milligan and fellow students at the home economics department baked a range of cakes for what has become an annual fund-raiser at Castlebrae.

“Yeah, we’re pleased with the amount we raised,” Lee told ChronicleOnLine.

“We do it every year in the school. The staff said they enjoyed the cakes really well.

“It’s an on-going thing for the school do to, so we will be doing it again next year.”

The Macmillan’s event was organised by the students at Castlebrae’s Red enterprise, which specialises in making and selling bread, cakes and jam at shows and other community events around the east of Edinburgh.
