STANWELL School pupils Phoebe Christie and Millie Sorenson, both 14, are on the fundraising committee of Teen Spirit - in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust.
They wanted to do something to raise awareness of teenage cancer and therefore planned and delivered a presentation to their year group in school.
The presentation highlighted teenage cancer, explained how Teenage Cancer Trust helps, and showed images of the state-of-the-art Teenage Cancer Trust unit at the University Hospital of Wales.
The next day they held a cake stall in school. All of the cakes were handmade, the majority by the girls and some donated from the committee.
They raised an amazing £312.54. With most items being sold at 50p or less. This means that had over 600 items to sell!
Phoebe's grandfather, who lives in Texas and is undergoing cancer treatment himself, donated a further £250 to the girls' efforts. making a grand total of £562.54.
All of this money goes directly to the Teenage Cancer Trust unit at the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff.
