OVER £200 was raised for cancer support service CLAN at the weekend by a 13 year old girl who has started selling her own homebakes and fancies in a Westside honesty box.
A total of £235.74 was made for CLAN via the Sand Honesty Box on Sunday, which has only been running for two weeks.
Honesty box owner Loui-Bo Scott said she wanted to give money to the charity because her family has been affected by cancer.
Goodies on offer included Malteser squares, flapjacks, coffee and walnut cake, rocky road, chocolate brownies and shortbread.
“I have always loved baking and decided to open an honesty box two weeks ago. It has been more popular than I thought,” Scott said.
“This Sunday I wanted to give all donations to charity. The first charity I want to give to is CLAN as my family and many other local families have been affected by cancer.”
