Money was raised for wards at the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham by a girl who suffered from cancer at a very young age.
Jessica Wade, a Year 7 pupil, came up with the idea to raise money because she was treated for kidney cancer there when she was five years old. She wanted to raise the money to thank the ward for saving her life.
She said: “When I was five-and-a-half I was diagnosed with bilateral Wilms’ tumour. The tumour was in my left kidney and spread on to my right kidney. After that, I had to have a five-hour operation and they removed a quater of my right kidney and three quaters of my left kidney. Then I had to go through 18 months of chemotherapy, which made my hair fall out.”
The whole form got involved with baking and selling and raised £70.
