As part of their mission to ‘Make good things happen’, Morrisons Community Champions have been asked to nominate a ‘Little Sunshine’ in their community – a child who has done something to help others. Rachael Chadwick, Community Champion at Morrisons Meltham, has this afternoon been to surprise her chosen ‘Sunshine’ with a certificate and gift.
Isabelle Wingate, aged 9, sadly lost her grandad to cancer not so long ago. She decided that she wanted to raise money for The Kirkwood, where her grandad was cared for before he passed away.
A keen baker, Isabelle set to work creating an assortment of delicious cakes and bakes, which she has been selling from an ‘Honesty Shop’ in her front garden! To date, she has raised over £1700 for The Kirkwood. Keeping up with demand has been a mammoth task, with ‘Isabelle’s Little Bakery’ selling out completely on several occasions. Now she’s back at school, the bakery will be opening less frequently, but you can check her Facebook page for the latest news and dates.
Rachael went along to meet Isabelle and her mum Kelly this afternoon, to inform them that Isabelle had won the title of ‘Little Sunshine’, and deliver a certificate and prize. As well as some goodies, the package includes a top-up of baking ingredients for the next batch of delicious treats from Isabelle’s Little Bakery.
Proud mum Kelly said “we feel honoured, and it’s fantastic that Isabelle’s hard work has been recognised”.
