Year 10's from St James Senior School for Girls cook up cakes and carols for children with cancer

I just picked up the following extract from the St James Senior School for Girls weekly newsletter where Aishwarya Chidambaram reported the success of their Year 10 Carols with Cake evening organised by the girls in aid of World Child Cancer. I was delighted to be able to attend the event and tell the girls World Child cancer had been selected as the Financial Times Seasonal Appeal. The girls event raised £450 for children with cancer who are suffering in some of the poorest countries in the world.

I can report the cakes were delicious and the singing even more so, truly delicious voices held aloft doing carols and other popular festive fare. A real treat.

10 WR's Carols and Cake On Wednesday 4th December, 10WR created an evening for parents, friends and teachers, filled with music and speech. This year the event had a Christmas theme and raised money for the charity World Child Cancer. As the last bell of the day rang at 4 o’clock we got into action: blinis were made, cinnamon buns were arranged, there was last minute guitar tuning and, of course, hair being styled!                                                                     

The evening began as peckish parents tucked into our array of 
mouthwatering refreshments: from gooey brownies to peppery
 palmiers. In fact, it was hard to get everyone away from the 
food table to start the carols! We sung a variety of songs, old 
classic carols like 'Silent Night' and more modern festive 
songs such as 'All I Want For Christmas Is You'.  They 
were either sung in rounds, as a Capella or accompanied 
by our diverse string instruments including 3 guitars, a 
ukulele and a double bass. We raised around £450 
and were delighted that Mrs. Ogden-Newton, 
Chief Executive of World Child Cancer, was also able to 
attend. Aishwarya Chidambaram, 10WR
