Marlborough sale is icing on the cake

Diabetics Aoife May and Niamh George put their aprons on and got busy baking to raise money for Diabetes UK.

The Year 2 pupils at St Mary’s School in Marlborough both suffer from Type 1 diabetes and are dependent on four or more injections of insulin each day.

With the help of their class teacher Alyson Mazzotta they decided to have a cake sale, which raised £80 for the charity.

Niamh said: “I liked decorating all the cakes in different sizes. Everybody said they were delicious.”

The sale also helped the seven-year-olds to explain the differences between Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes to classmates and parents.

Niamh’s mum Abigail George said: “I think they did an amazing job.”
