A Littleport schoolgirl raised more than £150 by baking cakes for a charity cake sale at her home.
Chloe Warren, nine, of Jersey Way, held her popular stall over the Bank Holiday weekend to raise money for Children In Need.
The tasty treats brought in £150.50.
The Millfield Primary pupil first saw Children In Need in November and said she wanted to help some children who didn’t have as much.
Her mum Sam said: “She spent since November planning what she will make, how much to sell for and doing posters.
